Our souls are overwhelmed by the magnitude of injuries our collective experiment in democracy has sustained. The spiritual work before us turns toward healing: the healing inauguration of the most diverse Executive, Legislative, and Judicial leadership teams in our nation’s history, as well as the healing inauguration of a new age of beloved community.
Our worship service is led by Sabbatical Minister Joe Rettenmaier, who is a minister in the Unitarian Universalist Association. He received his Master of Divinity degree from Meadville-Lombard Theological School. Joe was raised in Kansas and has lived in the Salish Sea since 1988. In 2016, he left a high-tech career to pursue his call to ministry – a call that aims to dismantle systemic racism, develop beloved LGBTQ+ multicultural faith community, and reverse climate change.
