The Possibility of Grace, Mr. Robert Kinslow

Posted by on Jan 20, 2019 in General News, Sunday Service Copies

We welcome back Rob Kinslow to our pulpit to preach on “The Possibility of Grace”

Rob asks,

“Would we recognize grace if it greeted us at our own door? Of the many ways to increase the benevolent gift of grace in our lives, one way is to recognize it when it happens. And one way to recognize it is to realize that grace is possible in every moment. On this Sunday we will sharpen our spiritual lens, the better to spot grace everywhere.”

Rob Kinslow has been a Unitarian Universalist since 1995 and a member of First Parish of Sudbury since 2000. Prior to Sudbury he was an active member of First Parish in Watertown.

Currently Rob serves as vice president for life sciences at KHJ, a Boston marketing agency. He is also preparing to become a Unitarian Universalist minister and currently attends Starr King School for Ministry in Berkeley, California. He serves as an itinerant preacher for area UU congregations, including First Parish Church in Taunton, where he is finishing a 2-year ministerial internship. Rob lives in Medford with his wife, Janice Zazinski, in addition to two furry companions of the canine persuasion, Daisy and Petey. He is the father of two grown sons, Jay and Dan, who live in Quincy and Tewksbury.
