“Honest to God, an Atheist’s Faith”
with Rev. David Carl Olson

david-carl-olson-e1472319248649

I was once asked if I believe in God, and I had to say with all honesty, “Of course I believe in Poetry.” Still, when Mother Teresa encouraged me to “do something good for God,” I promised that I would. And I haven’t stopped.

Rev. David Carl Olson is the Lead Minister of First Unitarian Church of Baltimore, having previously served the UU Congregation of Flint, MI, and Community Church of Boston. He is a singer, actor and director who toured with Little Flags Theater, earned his Equity union card at Wheelock Family Theater, maintained a singing studio at Steinert Hall, and served as artist in residence to underserved communities throughout Massachusetts in the 1980s and 90s. He is currently developing a non-profit development company in Baltimore to address that city’s crises of homelessness and hopelessness.

The congregation of the Community Church of Boston strives to be a wise steward of both financial and natural resources. We are working together with HEET (Home Energy Efficiency Team) to become more energy efficient, which will keep the congregation more comfortable, lower our energy bills and improve the energy efficiency of our building.
