Father’s Day/Celebrating Ministry and Diversity

We will celebrate Father’s Day, and also celebrate the congregation’s calling of a new minister. This congregation has just done “a bold new thing,’ as UUA President Peter Morales has called it, by calling a minister of color. In my early years of ministry, it was a bold step to call a minister like me, a woman, to a pulpit, and now women in UU ministry are commonplace. Starr King Church was also on the cutting edge back in the 1980, when you called a gay minister, now much more common. The service will explore this “bold new step” you have taken, and look toward the future of ministry at SKUUC and in our UU movement.
