Ralph Yeager Roberts

Ralph is one of the creators of the Montessori-inspired curriculum Spirit Play, which is used by hundreds of UU churches across the us and canada. As an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister of Religious Education, Ralph led what had been one of the largest children and youth ministry programs at that time and was asked to develop and teach the first course in UU religious education at Andover Newton to satisfy a core requirement for the masters program. He briefly served a UCC congregation becoming the first out gay man to ever be called to serve that denomination's South West Conference. For two years he wrote for a nationally carried lifestyle and travel magazine. Recently, in addition to his work developing and illustrating his Original Unitarian Universalist Advent Calendar, Ralph has engaged his creative side fabricating and designing specialty prop, set and costume pieces for area performers and theater companies. His work has been nominated over 5 times for a state theater award.
