Last week, the agenda for UUCC’s upcoming annual meeting scheduled for June 6 was published, and you may have noticed this “New Business” item: a congregational vote on the ordination of Jen Raffensperger. What does this mean? Why is Jen’s ordination dependent on our congregational vote? Well, it’s all part of the intense and involved process for becoming a minister in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, and you can learn more about it in today’s conversation with Karyn Marsh.
Karyn is a friend of UUCC, and the spouse of UUCC member Barry Marsh. Karyn was recently granted preliminary fellowship by the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Ministerial Fellowship Committee — that’s a lot of words to say that Karyn is so close to becoming a UU minister! Karyn graciously sat down with Rooted & Reaching for a conversation about the process for becoming a minister, her ministerial internship at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, and her own theology.
