“Can Trust Save Us? A Conversation”

Rev. Karen G. Johnston, Senior Minister, with Michael Wood-Lewis, & Geoff Duke, Worship Associate

What role does trust play in a healthy democracy and in healthy institutions? On a planet and in our local communities in the midst of this climate crisis or the many other crises we face? What might our central task be at this moment in humanity’s story? Rev. Karen and FUUSB member Michael Wood-Lewis will engage in a conversation about these profound topics (and hopefully some lighter ones, too). Be on the lookout for a fun skit from the Eclipse Team as they invite you and entice you to host a homestay next April.

Michael Wood-Lewis, along with Valerie, his partner, have been part of FUUSB since the 1990s, raising their four kids here. In 2000, they started what eventually turned into Front Porch Forum. FPF, a Vermont public benefit corporation, now serves every town and neighborhood in Vermont, fulfilling its social mission of helping neighbors connect and build community. FPF is increasingly recognized as a national model for constructive uses of the internet.
