Rev. Dennis Reynolds joined UUCWI in the summer of 2012. He comes to us from his former home in Eugene, Oregon. From there he served as part time Consulting Minister to congregtions in Klamath Falls, Oregon and Humboldt County, California. Dennis, his wife Suzanne and their beloved Labrador Sadie, call Langley home. Dennis serves our congregation half-time. He speaks on the 2nd and 4th Sundays each month and has office hours each week. (Consult our Calendar page). For a more detailed look at our minister’s history, see his Biography.
“Effective comprehensive ministry is shared ministry. Our goals can best be actualized when a congregation’s membership and its staff work together in partnership … Such an effective collaboration concurrently fosters each member’s individual spiritual growth In a Unitarian Universalist church or fellowship that effort rests on a commitment to shared principles and foundational values. We are part of a rich tradition that provides deep roots to hold us close as we seek, collectively and individually, to spread our wings.”
Sally Ann Elder has served as chaplain for UUCWI congregants since 2004. She officiates local weddings and funerals, assists in our religious exploration programs, volunteers as the hospital chaplain at Whidbey General and facilitates our North End Study Group. See her Biography for more details.
“I see chaplaincy as a sharing of life’s journey; an accompanying through whatever imprisons, frustrates, infuriates, or causes pain or joy.”
