In the summer of 1955, the year I graduated from high school, there appeared in the New York Times an extraordinary picture on the front page. It was the picture of a man and a woman standing facing each other. The man was Sergeant Matthew Mckeon, a marine Drill Instructor, the woman was Maggie Meeks. Their story is the heart of religion. A reflection.

Phil Sweet is a long-time friend of UUFDC, and a marvelous and insightful story-teller. He served as minister of Hope Church in Sturgeon Bay and two rural churches in western Minnesota.

Music: Ellen Shahbazi; the UUFDC Choir, Cynthia Stiehl conductor and Donna Russell accompanist.
