Rev. Christian Schmidt, new Senior UUCB Co-Minister, “Detoxifying Masculinity.” Rev. Schmidt has a Masters of  Divinity from Andover Newton Divinity School; he  is a Unitarian Universalsit, a father,  and a Humanist. He blogs: How can we as a church support the healthy growth and development of boys and men? In a world that pushes a view of masculinity that constricts the way men are “allowed” to be and act, and simultaneously hurts both those men and all other people, presenting a positive view of what masculinity can and should look like should be an important part of what we do at UUCB. In “Detoxifying Masculinity,”  the Rev. Schmidt will talk about his own experiences of growing up as a male, and how the church can support the development of healthy men and boys.
