Staff > Rev. Ed Brock

Rev. Ed is donating half the profits from his book, Optimal Relationships: A Path Toward a More Civil Society, to our church.

We bid a fond farewell to Rev. Ed.

Reverend Ed Brock has been our interim minister since August, 2016. His farewell sermon was June 17, and we presented him with gifts including a stole made by Susan Barrow.  He’s still available as needed through the end of July.  In August, Rev. Julie Conrady begins her ministry.

Rev. Ed’s training, experience and dedication have served our congregation well. Sunday, June 17th is his last day in the pulpit. He’ll remain on call and available for assistance as needed through the end of July. He’ll begin an interim ministry at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Huntsville beginning August 1, the same day that Rev. Julie Conrady begins her ministry here.

He grew up in Fairfield, Alabama, during the tumultuous Civil Rights era. Although his path and ours wouldn’t merge for decades to come, those were formative years for him as well as our church, which was very active in the struggle for Civil Rights.

Reverend Ed BrockHe is the author of the recently published Optimal Relationships: A Path Toward a More Civil Society.  He is holding Town Hall meetings from time to time to discuss the challenges we face as a church.  He emphasizes engagement between himself, the congregation, and congregational leaders.  As a team, we can fulfill our highest aspirations for our church.  He wants to hear from us about our dreams, hopes, and aspirations. Please contact the church administrator to set up an appointment.
