A Message from the New Family Ministry Director

Dear Families,

It is an enormous privilege to join your congregation.

Since I was eight years old, Unitarian Universalist church is where I have had the deepest experience of acceptance and love. Every Sunday morning I had a church home that gave me confidence to explore and share myself fully. 

This faith formation has shaped my life. Unitarian Universalism gave me the wisdom that led to my Zen practice, the passion for justice that led to classroom teaching, and the love for spiritual exploration with youth that led to my work in two church communities. 

I am evangelical about raising children Unitarian Universalists. Throughout my childhood wonder and teen angst, I have experienced the empowering love of our faith. And today I am so grateful to witness our churches continue to nurture so many thoughtful, compassionate young people.

I look forward to getting to know all of you and working together to build a Unitarian Universalist home that transforms and empowers children of all ages. 

If you have not done so already I strongly encourage you to please register your children and youth for our programming here. In the upcoming weeks I will be sending out information to registered families with information about their specific programs.

I will be available Sunday – Thursday by appointment and email. Feel free to contact me at [email protected] or 919-239-2439 if you have any questions.

In gratitude,

Dana
