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.

    Dr Bruce Rowan who killed his wife with an ax and then tried to dispose of the body by rolling it down a ravine and making it look like a car accident, attends there. Rowan stood to gain $500,000 in insurance money. He had one of the best lawyers in the US, David Allen to help get him off on a temporary insanity plea. The TUUC even gave Dr Rowan his own ministry.

    How do you get your own ministry? People with legitimate concerns don’t get their own ministry but Rowan did.

    It speaks to how much power and money can corrupt individuals and even entire organizations.
