New minister named for Sedona Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
The Sedona Unitarian Universalist Fellowship has hired Rev. Paul Langston-Daley as its minister.
Rev. Paul graduated from Andover Newton Theological School and the International Institute for Restorative Practices, and has served UU congregations nationwide for the past 13 years. In addition, Rev. Paul is trained in conflict management and community organizing. He is a co-founder of Communities Engaged in Racial Justice (CERJ) in Phoenix, where he currently makes his home, along with his fiancé and two dogs.
Rev. Paul’s sermon for the fellowship’s 1 p.m. service on Sunday, March 6, is titled “Holding On and Surviving.” The service will be held in the chapel of the Sedona Creative Life Center, 333 Schnebly Hill Road. Music will be provided by cellist Mirth Lindal and violinist Marion Maby.
According to Rev. Paul, “There are times in all our lives when we face challenges and difficulties. We struggle to get through the next moment, to keep it together and to survive another day. Who do we call on to sustain us, to hold us up and keep us sane? What keeps us from closing the door on the world? How is possible to survive in such times?”
SUUF serves Sedona and the Greater Verde Valley. Its mission statement reads: “Our Fellowship is a place to grow in mind and spirit. We promote a loving, just, and sustainable world through service, learning and action.” For more information, call (928) 646-7364.
