We are living in complicated times for families and particularly for youth. When family and social discord disrupts and threatens life, it is more than a social problem; it is a religious problem, one that calls people of faith to respond. Today we will contemplate how our faith can guide us in navigating the challenges that confront our families.
The Rev. Dr. Bruce Clark Clear (1950 -2022) was ordained in 1983, earning a doctorate (D.Min) from the University of Chicago’s School of Theology. In 1993, after serving in Vancouver, Washington, and Portland, he returned to his roots in Indiana, becoming the pastor of All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. Rev. Clear’s work as a theologian and minister was defined by an abiding passion for social justice as the foundation for church community. As pastor in each of his churches, he became an active member of the local council of churches and an outspoken community advocate for progressive and humanitarian causes.
