Beginning in the Dark

Rev. Rob Hardies


Many of our spiritual journeys begin in the dark—the dark of mystery, unknowing, doubt and struggle. For most of the holiday season, though, it’s the light that gets all the attention. This Sunday we’ll pause to honor the gifts of the dark. 

The Rev. Dr. Robert M. Hardies currently serves as minister of the UU Society of Martha’s Vineyard. From 2001 to 2020 he was senior minister of All Souls Church, Unitarian in Washington, DC, Unitarian Universalism’s dynamic flagship church in the nation’s capital. Rob lives in Washington with his husband and son.
