Best Welcoming Preaching Couple

The Rev. John Wright and the Rev. Barbara Ruth

Yes, we know many of you aren't into organized religion, but some of you may be looking for some spiritual fellowship or counsel, albeit with a progressive, liberal bent. If so, check out this Downtown church for size. It's run by the low-key (yet so dynamic) duo of the Reverends Wright and Ruth, who, as they put it, "don't believe in sad, judgmental religion." Can we get an amen?
