Today’s topic is finding inherent worth and dignity in every person, including yourself. And hopefully by the end of the show you’ll be clearer about seeking counsel from your older self and be more gentle with yourself and others.
My guest today is Angela Herrera. A unitarian universalist since she was 7 years old, and the daughter of a functionally illiterate mom, Angela Herrera graduated form Harvard Divinity School and is now the senior minister elect for First Unitarian in Albuquerque.
