Readying to Rise

As UU’s, we draw from many sources to help us make meaning of the realities we face in the present day. As we collectively emerge from the trials of a global pandemic, are there any lessons from the Christian story of Jesus’s resurrection that might help to inform our re-emergence back into the world?

Rev. Matt Aspin currently serves as Contract Minister for the Prairie Unitarian Universalist Society in Madison, WI. Rev. Matt is a graduate of Meadville Lombard Theological School, and previously served as Tahoma UU Ministerial Intern. His focus is on creating trusting, collaborative relationships with historically marginalized communities, expanding equity and ensuring better access to resources for all. Born and raised in New England, he spent the past few decades living in and appreciating the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. He found Unitarian Universalism after his daughter Cece was born 12 years ago and has devoted more and more of his life to supporting and expanding the possibilities of this life enhancing faith ever since. In addition to his formal training, he brings to a wealth of real-world experience gained from a successful career focused on Human Resources management and Leadership Development in both small and large non-profit organizations.  A recent Midwestern transplant, he and his partner, the Reverend Denise Cawley, currently live in Milwaukee, WI where they enjoy raising their kids, laughing at their dogs, gardening, cooking, biking, being in nature, and scheming for good together every chance they get.

This Sunday we will have a multi-platform service. A limited number of people can register to attend in person, OR folks can still attend via our online Zoom option. Those attending in person will follow our in-person gathering guidelines including wearing high-quality face masks. Registration is required, so that we can manage the number of people in the sanctuary and follow our gathering guidelines. No separate in-person programs for children and no nursery care, although children are welcome with their parents in the sanctuary.
