Rev. Pat Jobe, who did the summer sermons in Spartanburg ’06 – ’08 and served in Greenville as settled minister ’09 – ’17, will talk about his journey into and out of the Spartanburg congregation and encourage us to grow our congregation in service to people like we all were before we found UUism. Expect stories from both congregations and a good time.
