Rock god’s lyrics blare from a Stoughton pulpit
Lessons familiar to congregation
Bruce Springsteen’s lyrics are more often heard blaring from barroom jukeboxes on a Saturday night than from behind a church pulpit on Sunday mornings. Unless one attends First Parish Universalist Church in Stoughton, where the Rev. Jeffrey B. Symynkywicz sometimes preaches entire sermons on the legendary rocker. Lest one think the sermons are a gimmick, or ruse to fill church pews, Symynkywicz appears to have a real passion for the singer and his lyrics.
