MAY 16 — Rev. Jim Coakley —Sharing the Joy – “Your Elevator Speech”
Recently I’ve had a number of conversations with folks who are very happy with their Fellowship but are tongue tied when they try to tell others about it. Let’s explore why this is so and find the words to share our joy with others.
Rev. Jim Coakley’s UU roots are grounded in the remarkable story of the Fox Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Appleton, Wisconsin. As this congregation grew, so did Jim; initially as a lay leader and then a lay minister. Jim graduated from Meadville Lombard Theological School in 2015 and was ordained by his beloved congregation in 2016. His efforts in helping local UU congregations connect and collaborate are remarkable.
