Rev. Bev was called to serve the Unitarian Universalist Congregational Society of Westborough (UUCSW) in May 2015. She was very excited and honored to return to this congregation after serving as Ministerial Intern in 2007-2009.
Rev Bev recognizes the unique message of Unitarian Universalism; with its diversity of theology and thought as a strength and blessing of this faith tradition. She sees UUCSW as a vital, vibrant spiritual home for people throughout central Massachusetts. Rev Bev’s commitment to embracing diversity, encouraging spiritual growth and engaging in social justice work locally and globally matches the welcoming, justice-seeking, theologically diverse culture at UUCSW.
Guided by the Seven Unitarian Universalist Principles and drawing from the six sources of inspiration, Rev Bev believes that everything she does as a minister is about building relationships. Whether preaching on Sunday morning, facilitating an Adult Religious Education opportunity, speaking with the children or youth or providing pastoral care, speaking truth with love and listening with an open heart is of primary importance. The goal in all aspects of Rev Bev’s ministry is that people know they are not alone and that their inherent worth and dignity is honored.
Rev. Bev is a graduate of Andover Newton Theological School. She also earned a Master of Social Work from Salem State College. While at Andover Newton, Rev Bev worked as a hospice social. She has served congregations as an Interim Minister in New York and Massachusetts
When Rev Bev is not at UUCSW you will probably find her at home with her spouse, Donna, and their three rescue dogs or out geocaching – an activity Rev Bev describes as a wonderful combination of puzzle solving, exercise and self-care.
