Speaker: Steve Schmidt

Steve Schmidt is a longtime, active member of our congregation and
our Board.  Religion has long played an important role in Steve’s life and studies.  While in Thailand, as a young man, he studied Theravada Buddhism, and he was ordained as a monk for one year; he then studied for a Master of Arts degree in Philosophy at Chula Longkorn University in Bangkok.  More recently, after becoming a member of our church—and because he saw a great consilience between Buddhism and the Principles of Unitarian Universalism–Steve began a course of studies at Andover Newton Theological School.  Realizing that UU ministry was not in his future he took a Masters Degree in Moral Theology there.
