Mary Ann Macklin
Unitarian Universalist Church of Bloomington, Indiana's Senior Minister Reverend Mary Ann Macklin (2002 to present) is grateful to serve such a vibrant and generous congregation. Reverend Macklin identifies as a humanist mystic or a mystic humanist, depending on the day. She prefers parsley to cilantro, Star Trek to Star Wars, realism to cynicism, and Mary Ann to Ginger.
Reverend Macklin and her beloved life partner, Deborah, have been together for 25 years and now enjoy legal married status in the state of Indiana. Deborah is a music therapist, composer and hospice nurse. They share a home with several four leggeds, including Hodor the shaman puppy.
Reverend Macklin’s favorite quote is “Life is a paradox, and then again, it’s not.” Her personal vision is the same as the congregation’s: Seeking the Spirit, Building Community, Changing the World.
