Sharing Global Faith - May
Sharing Global Faith - May
Sharing Global Faith gathers Unitarian and Universalist voices from around the world in a unique devotional e-resource. Reflecting on various aspects of faith life, participants share spiritual insight into the stories and thoughts that fuel their ministerial call. Distributed monthly from April until September 2009, the publication seeks to deepen international connections and nourish the individual spirit.

In the May edition, three global U/U leaders explore the meaning of Freedom to our faith tradition by reflecting on an excerpt from one of Paul Robeson's well-known reflections.

We are honored to include contributions from:

  • Rev. Steve Dick - until recently was the Chief Executive of the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches - Unitarian congregations in Great Britain. Steve is American by birth and a British Unitarian minister by training. The majority of his life has been lived in Europe married to Jenneke, a Dutch woman whose grandfather was a liberal religious minister. In addition to serving as a parish minister and District Executive in England, Steve was a founder of European Unitarian Universalists and he was employed part-time by IARF. His broad perspective and spirituality benefits from his cross-cultural experience.
  • Rev. Roux Malan - is the minister of the Unitarian Church, Cape Town in South Africa. He is the father of two daughters aged 12 and 14. Roux followed a similar path to the founding father of the Cape Town Unitarian Church, Rev. David Faure, who in 1867 left the Dutch Reformed Church due to a change in his religious views. He has a keen interest in the diverse cultural and spiritual traditions of the world and their practical application in the 21th century.
  • Rev. William G. Sinkford - was elected president of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) in June 2001. As president of this liberal denomination, he is responsible to the UUA Board of Trustees for administering staff and programs that serve its more than 1,000 member congregations.
