IN THE INTERIM: #1

Dear UUFH,

I am writing this message on my second day in Huntington as your Interim Minister.  Thank you all for your warm welcome.

My beginning as your Interim Minister is a bit different than my colleagues since I already served as your transitions minister for four months.  I’m so happy to be with you full time for the next two years!  I understood my role as your transitions minister as providing you with excellent worship, serving as a support to the Board of Trustees, and supervising the staff.

My role as your Interim Minister is all of that – and it’s also about helping the congregation discern its future and what you are looking for in your next settled minister.  We’ll be using a variety of processes during my time with you to help the congregation answer important questions about how you will fulfill your mission, to each other and to the community.

I’m excited that I will be with you as you celebrate your 75th anniversaries as a community and as an official Unitarian Universalist congregation.  How wonderful that you’ve been here blessing people in greater Huntington for 75 years!

In September, we will schedule a series of “Starting the Interim” meetings.  Watch this space for more information.  We’ll hold them during the day, evenings, Saturday am and online so that everyone can find a time to attend. You may remember that in June, I asked you to think about how you would answer these questions:

*How has UUFH blessed your life?

*How would you like UUFH to bless the lives of the people who will come after you?

*When has UUFH seemed most alive as a congregation?

I also encourage you to think about what we have learned as a congregation since March 2020 and from the losses we have shared.

I promise you that one thing about my ministry with you won’t change.  I still think my most important job is to love you, to not just be your interim, but to be your minister.  I am so excited to be with you for the next two years and to get to know you, the Fellowship, and my new home community!

Blessings to you,
Rev. Debra

“The gathering of Unitarian Universalist communities creates energy,” says Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, UUA President. “There is power in our congregations to change lives—to save lives, to bring hope and offer deep care and an open heart.”
We welcome you to our community, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Huntington.
