And I'm Off (and Running)!

On Tuesday the 15th, I had my first day of working in a job with a real job description for someone other than myself in a long time. In 1998, stopped working for others (after a long stint of non-profit work and work at worker-owned cooperatives) and opened my own businesses (and worked as a contractor for others, sometimes).

While I love the flexibility of being a contractor and the freedom of running my own businesses, I am so glad to be back in a position within an organization bigger than myself.

As the new Director of Religious Education (and Administrative Assistant) of a local UU church, I have a wealth of gifted and experienced volunteers to assist me. I am free to fulfill my vision of multi-religious, multicultural education and have people cheer me on!

I am on my way to a training this weekend in Pittsburgh. It is for the Our Whole Lives sexuality education curriculum designed by the UUs and the United Church of Christ. It is one of the most comprehensive and thorough of its kind. I am thrilled that I get to teach this curriculum!

I am currently working on a summer curriculum that includes Midsummer, Father's Day, and the value of asking questions.

I will report back next week! Until then, have a great weekend!


  1. Congrats! That sounds like a great fit.

  2. I am so excited for you and for the church you serve! As a UCC pastor, I am familiar with that excellent curriculum and I hope you will find it helpful.

    Looking forward to hearing more!
