I am a Unitarian Universalist minister, currently serving the Unitarian Society of Northampton and Florence. We are at 220 Main Street, just down the hill from the Smith campus. I have been involved with Smith for about five years. I have worked with Matilda Cantwell, Interfaith Fellow, on Martin Luther King Day projects that have involved Smith students from the Interfaith Council. I am available to meet with students for conversations about matters of faith or their personal journeys. I would be happy to consult if a UU student group forms again on campus. Students are always welcome at our worship services and social events.
Unitarian Universalists are people with diverse individual beliefs about matters of the spirit and diverse personal spiritual practices. We share a commitment to respect the inherent worth and dignity of each person and to honor the interdependent web of life of which we are a part. In our congregations we worship, work and have fun together, deepening our connections, our personal and collective explorations of faith, and our commitment to make a difference in the world. Historically, Unitarian Universalism comes out of the liberal Protestant tradition.
