This sermon is from a service that was streamed on August 8, 2021 and led by Unitarian Universalist Church of Princeton Seminarian Pauline E. Nijander. The Hindu faith tradition believes that the holy resides within each of us and in every living being. How can we use this knowledge in how we interact with those around us? Or with those we don’t agree with? Or with the living world around us? Join us on this Sunday as we explore the Holy Within and what that means in our lives.
Pauline Nijander is a fourth year student at the Drew Theological School in Madison, NJ, where she is studying for the Unitarian Universalist ministry. Pauline has been a member of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Princeton since 2013, where she has served in various leadership roles, including the ministerial intern in the 2019-2020 academic year, and now, as the Seminarian. As a proud transwoman and lesbian, Pauline speaks often to different community and student groups about her perspective and life in hopes of educating people through honest and engaging conversation about trans* life and issues. For this work, she was awarded the 2017 Triad House LGBTQ+ Champion Award from LifeTies. Along with her wife, Michelle, and their sweet pitbull, Ingrid, Pauline resides in Ewing, NJ.
