Tahoma Unitarian Universalist Congregation finds new Minister
The Tahoma Unitarian Universalist Congregation (TUUC), located at 1115 South 56th Street, has finalized its search for a new interim minister. Announced by a volunteer celebrate during last Mother’s Day’s service, the appointment of Heather Lynn Hanson ends a search that was projected to lag into August.
A native of Oregon, Hanson was born and raised in the liberal Unitarian Universalist Church – which she credits with helping lead her to conflict communication studies following her divorce. Hanson has an extensive educational background and has led Unitarian congregations across the continent. For the past two years she’s been serving at Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Ashland, OR.
Hanson’s appointment was received with enthusiasm during last Mother’s Day’s service, but the challenges of a congregation in transition are sure to test her ability to unify Tacoma’s Universalists.
