Unitarian Universalist Fellowship selects first minister, Dr. Susan Moseley

Since chartered in 1999, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Rappahannock (UUFR) in White Stone has been a lay-led congregation that has grown to about 50 members. Members and visiting speakers have provided the Sunday morning services and pastoral duties.

Dr. Moseley will address the priority needs expressed by the congregation: providing pastoral care and counseling; acting in the community to raise awareness of Unitarian Universalist (UU) principles and beliefs; representing the UUFR in interfaith community activities; participating in UUFR programs as a speaker, service leader and teacher; consulting with the congregational leadership; and other ministerial duties.
