This sermon is from a service that was streamed on August 15, 2021 and led by Rev. Dr. Lisa Presley. Life is all about getting from here to there, that “hyphen” between the dates on our headstone. Right now, you at Unity Temple, are on the path from here to there is so many ways. So how do we do it, going from here to there?
A life-long UU, Rev. Dr. Lisa Presley is a Congregational Life Consultant for the MidAmerica Region, working with congregations across the region. Prior to this, she was a called minister in Southfield, Michigan, and also has served as interim minister in Calgary, Alberta; Rochester, Michigan; Naperville, Illinois and San Rafael, California. Educated at the University of Toronto, with her M.Div. from Harvard Divinity School, and her D.Min. from Meadville Lombard in Chicago, Lisa really learned about how to be a minister from the members of the congregations she served, and from her gifted colleagues. Now entering her fifteenth year of service to our wider movement, Lisa specializes in helping with safe congregations issues, transitions and conflict situations. She makes her home in Kalamazoo, Michigan with her partner Amy, their cat Squash, and their puppy Teddy.
