My Spiritual Journey(s) Abroad

Program for Sunday September 15, 2019

Software developer Will Bullard began his career as a Peace Corps volunteer teaching technical drawing at vocational high school in Moshi Tanzania, near the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro. But his overseas experiences began as a 17-year-old when he was an AFS high school exchange student to Chile, and included a summer in The Gambia with Cross Roads Africa while in college. Will Bullard has recently moved to North Truro from his hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas and will speak about his spiritual journey with an emphasis on how living abroad led him to become a Unitarian Universalist in 1990.
