Director of Music, River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation
I am excited about our future Unitarian Universalism with Susan leading the way. I think she has a great vision and leadership ability – especially for our denomination to be effective in making a difference in these troubling times.
From the first time I met Rev. Susan, I appreciated her clear call and passion for justice. In the many years we’ve known each other, my admiration for those aspects of her leadership has only grown stronger. In addition, I have witnessed her strategic thinking leading to greater health and vitality of her own congregation. I’ve seen first-hand her ability to pastor to people of all ages, including my very own Jewish elementary-aged step-daughter who, because of Rev. Susan, now thinks that UU worship is so cool and fun. Rev. Susan has also made clear her commitment to caring for our small and mighty congregations. In these dangerous times in our world, we need a UUA President like Rev. Susan – a person who will craft a cohesive, compelling vision for the future and who will lead us into deeper love, justice and vitality.
Juliejohn Wallace Knott#6 is seldom practiced, I look forward to it's implementation. Starting with metrics on the various "slogans" our denomination has issued over the Years: "Nourish Your Spirit, Heal Our World", "Unitarian Universalism the Uncommon Denomination", "A Spiritual Home Beyond Belief"...we're supposed to be a church that values logic as well as spiritual growth and nurturance of community.
