Speaker: Rev. Jan Christian

“People, Places and Things I Didn’t Know I Loved” [audio]

What happens when we approach the world, one another and ourselves with a holy curiosity? Why does Parker Palmer warn us about efforts to “build community?” What does match . com have to teach us about how we approach relationships? Rev. Jan reflects on these and other questions.

The Rev. Jan Christian serves as our Primary Contact on Congregational Life Staff for the Pacific Western Region of the Unitarian Universalist Association. Before taking that position over two years ago, she served our congregation in Ventura, California for 13 years. Prior to entering ministry she worked for several decades in Arizona’s juvenile justice and social service systems and taught in the College of Public Programs at Arizona State University. She lives with her partner, Norm, and two cats in Atascadero, California. She enjoys being in, on or near water, reading fiction and spending time with her “little brother” Angel, who is 12.
