Rev. Cindy Garrard: “The Role of Doubt in Faith.”

Our guest speaker on Sunday, Oct. 22, is Rev. Cindy Garrard. She’s a retired (and distinguished) United Methodist pastor who served more than 35 years in local congregations. Her talk aligns with a theme of Unitarian Universalism and particularly with our Fellowship in Columbus. (We once ran a newspaper ad that read: “Got doubt? So do we!”)

Rev. Garrard says this about doubt: “This idea is foundational to Judaism, but many Christians find it anathema. It has been an important concept for my faith and ministry.” Rev. Garrard earned a master’s degree of divinity from Birmingham-Southern College and a doctorate from the Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta. She and her husband raised two daughters, one of whom, Lizzie Garrard DiQuattro, spoke to us in January.
