H. William (Bill) Gregory, Rel. D.
A retired pastor and preacher in the United Church of Christ, Bill has served UCC congregations in Claremont, CA, Lincoln, MA, Berkeley, CA and Portland, ME.
He is an inclusive Christian, grounded in Jesus, finding Light in other faith traditions as well. His primary communities today are his family and membership in the First Parish Church in Yarmouth.
Bill likes to write - two books - “And the Answer Is Yes” and “Faith Before Faithfulness”, columns for the Portland, Maine Press Herald’s Religion and Values page, sermons, essays, poetry, etc. He leads a long running spiritually seeking group and mentors those few who seek him out. He belongs to two men’s groups and a grandfather’s group, walks for exercise (in California’s Sierra Nevada less often than he’d like) but mostly with the family dog. Ageing has taken its bites but he finds this time in his life as good, maybe even better than any up to now.
