I have been richly blessed by mentors and teachers who helped me along my way. None was more important to my emergent Unitarian Universalist ministry than Rev. John Buehrens, who reached out to me during my first year at seminary, and has been an important mentor and guide to Unitarian Universalism ever since. As part of my own way to give back, this Thursday I will begin at Yale Divinity School as a lecturer on Unitarian Universalist Ecclesia, Ministry and Polity, providing me with a chance to pay forward the gift of teaching and mentoring. Blessed Be.
