Joy: Patient, Elusive and Full of Surprises

Joy is an experience that many UUs contemplate each Sunday morning when we lift up the joys and sorrows of our congregation.  In this service, we will explore joy as a spiritual experience that seems inextricably woven together with sorrow and suffering and is also, blessedly, full of surprises.  Bio:  Kathy Baughman moved to Arizona in September of 2006 to take a position as a staff chaplain at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix.  She currently serves as the chaplain for the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center in Phoenix.
