My experiences serving Unitarian Universalism have taken me from my home state of Kansas to our roots in Massachusetts, from the unique faith expressions of California to our international family in Ontario and back to the Midwest again. I have served in churches ranging from 50 members to 300 members as well as community ministries. These journeys have given me the opportunity to understand the shape of Unitarian Universalism and how our story has been influenced by particular events in our past as well as the regional cultures in which we have found ourselves.
Through my experiences with these different congregations and my work with the General Assembly Planning Committee, I have gained a greater understanding of our faith and a greater appreciation for how historical events continue to shape us today.
