Rev. Aisha Ansano preaching

Joy, sorrow, grief, love – we encourage each other to embrace all our emotions. But what about anger? Anger, too, is a feeling we can, and should embrace in our lives. When the world around us is full of injustice and pain, how do we harness our anger and rise from the ashes of an injust world into beloved community?

Rev. Aisha Ansano currently serves as the Youth Program Coordinator at First Parish UU of Arlington, MA, where she gets to work with an amazing group of high school youth who inspire her every day. Aisha is excited about the intersections of food, spirituality, and community, and looks forward to continuing to find ways for them to all fit together in her ministry.
