Unitarian Universalist Ministry
Unitarian Universalist ministry is a call to exploration. As UU’s we don’t believe that we will ever know the answers to the big questions, but instead we are called to spiritual exploration. We believe that how we show up in the world and our service to others is what creates meaning in our lives. We also believe in our Eight Principles that honor the worth and dignity of every human being, regardless of race, gender, sexuality, color, ability or age. We strive to live into our core values with our work to dismantle systemic racism and to build our own racial awareness.
My ministry is based on remembering our connection with all living things, the power of spiritual community, and the practice of seeking joy in nature, in the moment, and in our connections with others.
