Rev. Lindi Ramsden


Acting Dean of Students and Community Life, Starr King School for the Ministry

As a lifelong UU, Susan knows that a spiritual vitality is the essential foundation for our ministries – fostering hope, inspiration and resilience in these uncertain times. As a leader, Susan brings many personal gifts to the role of UUA President. She is visionary and strategic. She listens well, fosters other leaders, welcomes input, and can make decisions. Susan can inspire a crowd and connect one on one with an individual. Compassionate and courageous, enthusiastic and tenacious, she is willing to take some risks and also knows that real change requires significant commitments over the long haul. She even enjoys fundraising and is excited by the opportunity to bring additional resources to empower our faith! Susan’s leadership prioritizes relationships. She builds trust. From trust grows authentic and effective collaboration. When I was serving as Executive Director of the UU Legislative Ministry of California, I asked Susan to be part of my small “justice ministry think tank”. Her spiritual depth, on-the- ground experience, intelligence, insight, imagination, humility and practical ideas were most helpful to me as I worked to establish a statewide ministry that was charting new ground. Susan is an outstanding religious leader with compelling priorities for such a time as this. I wholeheartedly endorse the Rev. Susan Frederick Gray for UUA President.

The Somali-British poet Warsan Shire's words come to me again, “I held an atlas on my lap, ran my fingers over the whole world and whispered ‘where does it hurt?’ It answered, ‘everywhere, everywhere, everywhere.’” Spirit, fill our hearts with compassion and strength. ...
