I love Unitarian Universalist worship, whether it is an on-going conversation with a congregation I'm serving or an invitation into the worship life of a congregation as a guest preacher. I have been a guest preacher and worship leader for congregations and UU communities with a variety of sizes and worship styles, both in person and on Zoom. It's a pleasure and a privilege for me to collaborate with lay leaders and religious professionals to craft worship that speaks to the moment we find ourselves in and supports our on-going quest to make meaning and live lives that help make the world more whole. My approach to services integrates words, music, silence, and elements for all ages into a cohesive arc that invites those present to connect with the topic in many ways.
During the summer of 2020 I was part of an online worship service for SUUSI, the Southeast UU Summer Institute, and I coordinated a "summer worship consortium" between nine ministers in eastern Massachusetts, allowing members of the congregations to virtually join one service from each congregation that summer.
