A Message from Ruth Vann Lillian

I am pleased to share some good news regarding my journey toward fellowship as a Unitarian Universalist Minister.  Even though only a ministerial candidate, I was given special permission to enter into a contract as the half-time minister at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Tuscaloosa beginning August 1st.  They would have preferred a full-time minister but I told them I already have a commitment here at UUCB as the half-time Interim DRE.

So I will continue working here for my beloved community as your IDRE for the next year while Rev. Julie Conrady and church leadership engage in a search for a new Dir. of Religious Education, and I will serve the Tuscaloosa congregation as their minister.  I will alternate Sundays and days in the office so that I can be present in both congregations.  I will also continue to be accessible by phone, email, and Facebook.

It continues to be a joy and an honor to serve my church where I have great hopes for the future!
