Rev. Karen G. Johnston (she/her/hers) is the settled minister at The Unitarian Society in East Brunswick, NJ. Before becoming a minister, she spent 20+ years as a clinical social worker. Buddhist meditation and befriending death practices sustain her, as does her delightful dog, Vera, and a blessed abundance of other beings in her life.
