Ministers

Revs. Bill Breeden and Mary Ann Macklin

We come together in this Unitarian Universalist congregation from many places and stages of life. Diversity characterizes our lifestyles and experiences, our philosophies and religious journeys. Yet coming together here we are united by our living tradition that celebrates life, honors human dignity, and commits to work for justice and peace in our time.

A warm welcome. As co-ministers we are honored to serve such a vibrant and healthy congregation as the Unitarian Universalist Church of Bloomington. The congregation's vision, "Seeking the Spirit, Building Community and Changing the World" speaks to who they are and where they are going. If you are someone who is religiously homeless and spiritually hungry, we invite you to join us for one of our worship services on Sunday morning. We do not ask you to believe or follow any particular theology, but we do ask you to think for yourself and honor the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

As Unitarian Universalists we draw from many sources for inspiration. From the wisdom of the world's religions and humanist teachings to the inspiring words of women and men throughout time, we honor the interdependent web of all existence. If you are searching for a spiritual home, we invite you to join us on our liberal religious journey. We hear many of our visitors and new members say that they find a spiritual home within this community. If our faith tradition does not speak to your spirit, we will try to help you find the religious community that does.

Peace - Reverend Mary Ann Macklin and Reverend Bill Breeden
