Delighting Our Spirits This Summer with Rev. Jim Coakley

Delighting Our Spirits This Summer: Centered In Love 

Summer’s slower pace offers opportunities to experience things we often can’t during the rest of the year. We seek out spiritual delight centered in love through which we nurture feelings of belonging, connectedness, and joy. As Unitarian Universalists we are called to extend this love into the often loveless world and make a difference.

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.
