On Saturday, June 20th and Sunday, June 21st we bid a fond farewell to Reverend Lindasusan Ulrich, who has served UUAA and blessed us with her  sermons, singing and meditations for the last five years. She leaves us to become the settled minister at the Unitarian Society of New Haven, Connecticut! Our best wishes travel with Lindasusan, her wife Emily and son R.J.!

Rev. Lindasusan gave her farewell sermon at the service June 21, 2020.

Rev. Lindasusan encouraged us to always leave room for our creativity and sense of playfulness. She asks all of us to go forward with courage and kindness, to be a blessing to the World.

The June 21st service is available for viewing following this link.

At the end of the service, Senior Minister Rev. Manish Mishra-Marzetti, virtually presented Lindasusan with a hand made Lakota ceremonial drum as a farewell gift that recognizes her connection to sacred drumming.

We couldn't gather in the social hall for cake and music, but many UUAA congregants took part in a car parade to honor Rev. Lindasusan, Emily and RJ.
