Remembering the Land
Rev. Mark Ward, Lead Minister
“I thought the Earth remembered me, she took me back so tenderly,” writes Mary Oliver in her poem “Sleeping in the Forest.” Our connection to Earth is primal, visceral, yet so often it slips our conscious awareness. This Sunday we will explore ways that we might more intentionally remember the land.
Rev. Ward offers spiritual leadership and a pastoral presence for the congregation and is chiefly responsible for its worship life. He also acts as chief of staff and oversees management of the congregation’s ministries. He was called as Lead Minister of UUCA in 2004.

She leads the faith development activities of our congregation, including educational activities for all age groups and small group ministries. She also leads worship monthly. Rev. Jimenez was hired as Minister of Faith Development of UUCA in 2018.

We are all called. The call comes from everywhere; from the past, the present, and the future. We are called by our ancestors, our children, and those who are yet to come to weave our lives together to continue the work of love and justice.
