UUCC member, former UUCC staff member, and current seminarian Jen Raffensperger tells Sara about her first encounters with Unitarian Universalism after navigating away from the Catholicism of her youth. “I had been so dismissive of religions … none of them being the ‘correct’ one, that I didn’t think there would be a correct one for me,” Jen says. In this conversation, Jen reflects on awaking to her call to ministry during her first visit to UUCC, shares her process for writing sermons, and discusses the hardest parts of the road to ministry and of being human.
