Kathryn Vanden Berk
Kathryn Vanden Berk went to the Island of Iona for a week-long retreat in 2004. Learn about the Abbey’s founding by St. Columba in 563, its long history and decline, and its restoration after World War II by a group of unemployed shipbuilders from nearby Glasgow. Iona is the ancient burial ground of Scottish kings, including both Duncan and Macbeth. It is a place of “thin air” that is now lovingly cared for by the ecumenical Iona Community. All hymns will be from a hymnal published by the Community.
After 21 years of service, our congregation said goodbye to Rev. Gary James on June 30, 2013. During the 2013-2014 church year, we welcome several visiting UU ministers, on regular rotating basis who will offer us a variety of perspectives. We will have an interim minister for the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 years and a settled minister beginning August 2016. The search process for the settled minister will begin approximately January, 2015.
