Now Minister at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Elgin (UUCE)

I have served Unitarian Universalist congregations in Honolulu, HI, Fayetteville, AR, Bellingham, WA, Santa Barbara, CA, Vancouver, WA, and Charlotte, NC as an interim minister.

Now, I am pleased to minister in Elgin, IL from Jan 2019 to July 2022.  Our beloved community, in “normal times” occupies our historic barn re-architected into a magnificent and spacious church complete with inspiring sanctuary. In these days of pandemic, we communicate as much, but via electronic means.

I invite you to join us– for our online Sunday services or other online gatherings throughout the week accessible through our website or see us on Facebook. When we are able to gather in person, we would love to see you in church or to share our beautiful labyrinth.

Or please feel free to contact me at I’d love to hear from you.
