Minister, UU Church of ManchesterI endorse Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray for UUA President.
A Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Ministry, UU Church of Sarasota, FLSusan Frederick-Gray embodies what it means to take our values out into the world. As a minister and activist, she is aware of the awesome potential our congregations have to be collaborative instruments of justice in communities across the nation, and as a pastor she understands how hungry we all are to lead lives integrity and meaning with the support of a community that looks beyond itself. For me, those two ideas represent the promise of Unitarian Universalism, and I can’t think of anyone better suited to leading us into that future.
Minister, BuxMont UU FellowshipSusan Frederick-Gray embodies leadership and commitment to Unitarian Universalist values. She exhibited courage in facing down the anti-immigration efforts in her home state, Arizona – and then bringing that witness, that call to action to the wider Unitarian Universalist movement. She helped lead us all in those efforts then – and after – Justice GA 2012, and so I see her as an excellent guide and leader for our faith into the next chapter.
Senior Minister, UU Congregation of Fairfax, VAFrom the first time I met Susan, I saw qualities of leadership I felt could benefit the entire UUA. After Justice GA those thoughts were confirmed. We are at the edge of an important time in this faith tradition, this country and this world. We need to bring forth the voice of kindness, love and justice in new, creative and bold ways. Susan has demonstrated these gifts and has a vision for the future of Unitarian Universalism for the 21st Century. It is time for us to give gratitude for those who have come before us, but move forward to live our faith out beyond the boundaries of our own making to help facilitate healing, wholeness and transformation for ourselves, each other and the planet. I believe that Susan is the right person at the right time and I wholeheartedly support her.
Senior Minister, UU Society of SacramentoI’ve known Susan for 20 years and am thrilled for our Association that she’s running for UUA President. She is a skilled administrator and loving pastor. As a leader, she is both practical and visionary, grounded and passionate. Susan’s approach is relational and her work is mission-driven. She knows we need organizational clarity and financial generosity to stay vital as a movement, and she brings a proven track record in fundraising and church growth. Moreover, as a true ally, Susan has modeled how to learn from and stand with local justice leaders and interfaith colleagues. Her courage and compassion inspire me and give me hope. As we face troubling times and uncertainty about the future, Susan’s depth of experience, spiritual grounding, maturity, scholarship and passion are just what we need.
Interim Minister, UU Fellowship of Harford CountyI fully support Rev. Susan Frederick Gray, for UUA president. Why?
