Last Sunday I had an opportunity to speak at a local church about “Bias-based bullying and mental health”. This was based on my first book titled “A Life Interrupted – the story of my battle with bullying and obsessive compulsive disorder”. I was not sure what to expect since I had not spoken in front of a church congregation before. But it turned out to be a wonderful experience.

It was the Unitarian Universalist Church of Minnetonka. I found the attendees to be extremely caring and genuinely interested in what I was speaking about. Almost all of the attendees came up to me at the end of the service and thanked me personally for taking the time to speak at the church. Most of them had extremely encouraging and supporting words for me. It was truly a very positive experience for me.

I went into their website (uucmtka.org) to read more about their background information and found some very interesting material. I read about their guiding principles and I found them all to be very open and welcoming. The following are some of their principles (from their website) that I liked the most:

The inherent worth and dignity of every person

Justice, equality and compassion in human relations

Acceptance of one another

The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all
