The Josephine Gould Discourse is named for former district religious educator and author Josephine T. Gould. The Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association St. Lawrence Chapter sponsors the event, which is held the Friday of the weekend of the St. Lawrence District Annual Assembly. Past speakers select an outstanding ministerial colleague to offer the discourse each year. Discoursers often invite a prepared response from another ministerial colleague or a professional religious educator.
