We aren't Unitarian Universalists in isolation. Ever since the Cambridge Platform of 1648, we've recognized the need to gather together in groups of congregations - to learn from each other, to help each other, to grow together. Therefore, I think it's critical that we maintain our associational connections, in informal relationships, as well as at the cluster, regional, and UUA levels.
Since 2019, I have been serving as a commissioner on the UUA Commission on Appraisal. In this capacity I was one of the co-authors of the Commission's most recent report, Unlocking the Power of Covenant, published in 2021.
I served on the Board of Directors of the Joseph Priestley District until we dissolved in March of 2019 as the UUA moved toward a regional structure. I was honored to have been able to serve during this time.
I served a six-year term on the board of the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship. The UUCF has been serving the liberal Christian community for about 70 years.
Clergy also need to be in community with one another. I'm currently the President of the Priestley-Kingsbury chapter of the UU Ministers Association, and also the President of the Military Chaplains chapter. I am also a member of the Transitional Ministers chapter.
