UU Chalice by Inga Johannesen, UU Church of Chattanooga, TNOur fifth episode features Tess George, a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashua and former Executive Director of the Unitarian Universalist Action Network of New Hampshire.

Raised Catholic, Tess left the church after questioning the virgin birth of Jesus. She became Unitarian Universalist while in college, and her spiritual exploration subsequently led to Paganism.

Not believing in a personal god, Tess finds divinity in nature and her relationships. She has a strong commitment to social justice, in her words to “even the playing field.”

During our conversation, Tess spoke of her daughter taking the Our Whole Lives sexuality education course, which is part of the UU religious education program. You can read more about the curriculum here.
Listen to my conversation with Tess, which runs about 40 minutes, using the above audio player. Or you may download the mp3 file here. You may also listen and subscribe to the podcast via iTunes.
