A personal note on my journey. In 2000 I began exploring the possibility of community ministry and took courses at Gonzaga. In 2001 enrolled in the Modified Residency Masters of Divinity program at Meadville Lombard, attend classes in Chicago during five Januaries, and graduated in May 2010. During the summer of 2007 I completed a three month Chaplain Internship (one credit of CPE) at the Providence Portland Medical Center. In 2010, I completed a six month community ministry internship in higher education and a three month parish ministry internship in the UU Congregation of Salem Oregon. In 2010 and 2012 I interviewed with the Ministerial Fellowshipping Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) the gate-keepers for ordination as a UU minister. I was not fellowshipped by the MFC, a long story, but this has not gotten in the way of my being a non-ordained community minister committed to the use of education for creating community and social justice. I remain committed to service but at this point do not see the value of fellowshipping with the UUA.
