Dear People’s People,
On behalf of the Interim Minister Task-Force and Board of Trustees, I am pleased to announce that we have contracted with the Reverend Pam Allen-Thompson to serve as our Interim Minister for the next two years.
Reverend Allen-Thompson spent the last year as an interim minister at First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis, MN. Prior to that, she served as a consulting minister, interim minister, and settled minister in Florida, Virginia and California. Among other things,
Pam served as a UUA trustee, on the Pacific Central District Board, the national board for PFLAG, and United Way of Northwest Ohio. She has been active in anti-oppression work and interfaith activity.
Prior to ministry, Pam earned a Ph.D. in German Studies and has co-authored two books and published numerous scholarly articles.
She and her partner of 21 years, Di Allen-Thompson, are proud grandmas and together they have renovated seven homes and three duplexes. Pam is fond of bold colors and interesting hats, enjoys making tasty meals from leftovers, and likes to ride her bike to work and anywhere that is possible.
For more information on Pam, please go to the member’s section of the web page. Pam begins her work with us August 1, 2013 and as we get closer to the new church year, there will be more information on how we can, as a community, welcome her to our shared ministry.
In peace and community,
