Minister:
Reverend Julie Brock

Hello! I'm Rev. Julie Brock. My deepest calling is to build beloved community. In my experience, beloved community is built when people are intentional about taking really good care of one another and our neighbors who may not sit in our pews, but who share our humanity. My favorite tools of the trade are shared meals, grounding ritual, good storytelling, and soul-deep music. My ministry is all about celebrating life and its source, whatever we might imagine it to be. I believe Unitarian Universalism's core message, that we are all worthy and all connected, is necessary, even life saving, especially in this time of division and isolation. I look forward to the next congregation with whom I can spread the UU message, build the beloved community, and have fun doing it.

For more information about my background and training, please see Joyously Building the Beloved Community.
