Out with the old and in with the new! This will be my last blog entry as the Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth Board Chair. As you may already know, my time as chair has come to an end.

Betsy Tomic and Dr. Susanna Wu-Pong Calvert are now serving as Interim Co-Chairs while my attention has turned to managing a national search for a new Board Chair. We hope to announce a new incoming Chairperson in June during the 2022 General Assembly and that they will begin in July.

I am so grateful to have engaged with many of you over the past two years and to have worked closely with so many dedicated Board members, Advisors and staff. Together, we’ve moved UUMFE forward, growing its following and impact, expanding its staffing, and making strides in its internal organization and operations. Now it’s time for new leaders to take UUMFE and our shared ministry for environmental and climate justice to the next level!

The ministry of this collective community is needed now more than ever, because so much is at stake in our lives and world today. As Unitarian Universalists, we need the grounding of our liberal faith and the company of one another as we navigate the unceasing effects of climate change and social unrest. As a friend recently reminded me, “the only way through is through.”

UUMFE is there to accompany you, planting seeds to bring you thoughtful programming and educational resources, helping you cultivate practices of faith-grounded action, and nurturing your souls to sustain your activism for the long haul.

So grateful to be on this journey with you,

Rev. Cindy Davidson
UUMFE Board Member
Chair, Search Team
