Speaker: Erien Babcock
Erien Babcock found the world of Unitarian Universalism as a very young adult during her first military assignment. She is a student at Starr King School for the Ministry and a ministerial intern at Tahoma UU. As someone who loves truth in education, she worked in youth programming in the past and has a strong advocacy history. Erien seeks to walk the path of military chaplaincy, and this internship is one of her final steps. She is a lover of Star Wars, science fiction in general, comic books, and ice skating. Erien’s husband, Ian, proudly serves in the military. Her blended family has four children who teach the uniqueness of each experience without even trying.
“The spirit of a person’s life is ever shedding some power, just as a flower is steadily bestowing fragrance upon the air.” ~ Thomas Starr King
As we celebrate all things Irish in the month of March, join us to explore the traditions of early Irish faith practices.
This service will be the first of three sermons by Erien in collaboration with congregants who “won” our FUNdraiser silent auction opportunity to work on a sermon topic with our Ministerial Intern. Luck of the Irish? Join us to learn more!
A look at early UU history for places resiliency can be found. A deep focus on Francis David and the power of faith in resiliency.
Our whole church worship will focus on how love makes us more resilient and able to offer our love to the world. We’ll sing, write love letters, create a few tokens for the world. Bring the whole family and your whole selves for a great morning together!
Ansamblu will provide music for this worship service.
Erien Babcock, our Ministerial Intern, is speaking on how she walked her path to arrive at Tahoma UU Congregation and her call to military chaplaincy.
