Being Patient with Patience (in times like these)

High Street Church Zoom Worship with Rev. Marti Keller, August 9, 2020

This week’s guest Minister comes from a family of impatient people – inclined to honk at and even cuss at other drivers, and clock watching. Not an admirable quality – especially in times like this – but is there a justice seeking upside after all?

Rev. Marti Keller has been both a parish and social justice Minister for 22 years—serving congregations in the South, speaking extensively in pulpits in this country and abroad. For six years, Rev. Keller was the gender justice and equity Minister for the Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation, for whom she tracked and did public witness on reproductive justice and other intersectional issues impacting women and girls.

She most recently was a co-interim Minister in Jacksonville Florida. She has also been active in the small group ministry movement and in Unitarian Universalists for Jewish Awareness. She was the co-editor of Jewish Voices in Unitarian Universalism ( Skinner House Press). She is the surprised and proud recipient of this year’s Ministry to Women Award from the UUWF. She is a published poet: her latest chapbook is “Red Wool Socks and Dark Chocolate: Life in Three Lines.” (Matrika Press)
