Roots Hold Me Close

at 9 AM & 11 AM

The Rev. Marta Valentín will be preaching.  So much has been happening for all of us, all over this country and the world that it’s often hard to remember what it is that keeps us from spinning off the edge. Now with the holidays upon us, it is a good time to take a breath, and get rooted in who we are.
 
The Rev. Marta Valentín currently ministers with the good people at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Medford, MA. Prior to that she served churches in Littleton, MA and Arlington, VA.  Her first called ministry was to New Orleans in 2005. A poet, her prayers and poems appear in many Skinner House Books, including her own meditation manual, A Long Time Blooming, signifying the first person of color sole author to do so. She is a founding member of the regional anti-racism/anti-oppression/multicultural group GRACE: Growing Racial and Cultural Equity, comprised of colleagues and congregational lay leaders.
