Rev. Brigid Beckman – Minister Candidate

Our Search and Find Team is very excited to announce that they have selected a candidate for our Senior Minister position – Rev. Brigid Beckman!

CANDIDATE WEEKEND: October 30 & 31

  • Rev. Brigid offered a Saturday Morning Workshop on October 30, 10:00 am to Noon: “The Wisdom of Autumn” – in-person in the Unity sanctuary or on Zoom.
  • Rev. Brigid offered the meditation and message on Sunday, October 31 for our 10:00 am Service. Her message, was titled, “I Am Listening”
    “Taking a cue from Michael Singer’s ‘The Untethered Soul,’ I’ve spent a lot of time over the past few weeks noticing my often noisy “inner roommates!” At the same time, meditating on the poem by Joyce Rupp titled “Listening to Autumn” invited me to pay attention and find insight into our human rhythms as I listen to nature’s rhythms. This talk will explore questions, challenges, and possibilities that arise from the wisdom found in deep listening.”
  • Q&A session followed the service on Zoom 
  • Congregation Response – Congregants submitted their responses to Rev. Brigid’s presentations with our Survey and also took part in a lively Zoom session with our Board of Trustees on Thursday, Nov. 4 at 5:30 pm on Zoom.
