The Reverend Glenn Coleman Farley will explore the story of Northern Arizona hero Clyde Tombaugh; the discoverer of Pluto, in a discussion at the Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation (GPUUC) at 10 am on Sunday May 22. The sermon by the Rev. Farley is entitled "Welcoming Science & Reason, Honoring Mystery & Wonder.” The Rev. Farley will speak to Clyde Tombaugh’s early life, with his painstaking work to discover Pluto at Lowell Observatory, in Flagstaff, Arizona. And from this, we will come to understand the impulse to explore, discover new worlds, and the true meaning of a life well lived in community.

The Rev. Glenn Coleman Farley has served as the consulting minister to the Sedona UU Fellowship since 2012. Before his call to ministry, Glenn spent six years working in the investment industry. He completed chaplaincy training in Hawaii and a student ministry internship in New Jersey. Glenn is a graduate of the University of Maryland and the Starr King School for the Ministry.

At the May 22 service, attendees are invited to bring non-perishable food items such as canned food items, including soups, proteins, chili, pasta sauce, fruit and beans, as well as toiletries, especially toothpaste and brushes, deodorant, razors and shampoo for donation to the Coalition for Compassion and Justice (CCJ) Open Door food bank. Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation facilities are accessible to people with physical challenges.
