By Assistant Minister Rev. Sarah Caine.

It is nearly one year since I became the assistant minister for this beloved UUCF community. So much has happened in that time and I am grateful for it. I’ve been ordained, commissioned and had at least three different hair colors since then.

We have amazing programming in the upcoming congregational year – classes and workshops, new and continuing Covenant Groups, new and continuing Wellspring groups and a new initiative to engage our spirits more intentionally and richly. This is a capable and kind group of folks and I’m excited to see what will take shape as our liturgical year unfolds.

This congregational year will indeed be my final one at UUCF. My contract comes to an end in June, and the death of a friend this summer drove home the internal longings to be closer to those family and friends who have been there for me since before I recognized this call. I’m not sure where Spirit will put me exactly; I will continue my chaplaincy in the U.S. Army Reserve wherever I land on the West Coast and I hope to establish an entrepreneurial ministry rooted in embodied practices.

I’m so excited for UUCF and the work we will do together while I’m still your assistant minister! This truly is a special place filled with amazing people. Let’s get to work!
