Next Sunday, June 9, UUFR will hold its annual congregation meeting, a sure signal that we’re about to wrap up the church year. As part of this transition, we wanted to let you know that at the end of June we will be removing Rev. Justin Osterman’s photograph from the hallway outside of the Conference Room, and replacing it (as soon as his photo is available) with a picture of Rev. James Kubal-Komoto, who will be joining us in mid-August.
It is our tradition to display photos of each of our called ministers and of the minister currently serving our congregation. Rev. Osterman is no longer serving us, and many of our members and staff have commented that the presence of his picture triggers awkward feelings at best and, in some cases, severe anxiety. Rather than waiting for Rev. Kubal-Komoto’s arrival in August, we will switch these photos at the start of the new church year to mark a fresh focus on our future officially. If this raises any concerns for you, please speak to any of your Board members or email us at [email protected].
In Faith and Fellowship,
