Our Lay Leaders
The Board of Trustees
The Davies congregation conducts its business in keeping with the Fifth Principle of Unitarian Universalism: “The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.”
As such the Board of Trustees is elected by the congregation and represents them throughout the year. The 2019-20 Board of Trustees are:
- President: Lora Bennett
- Vice President: Sandy Greenberg
- Treasurer: Esther Zinnerman
- Secretary: Daniel Whalen
- Trustee: Mariama Onwuchekwa
- Trustee: Jennifer Sullivan
- Trustee: Breanna Williams
- Trustee: Carolyn Wooster
Teams and Committees
Lay leaders play crucial roles at Davies. Volunteers clean, garden, and keep the premises in good repair. The Religious Education Committee ensures that our youngest members are appropriately challenged and supported. A healthy financial endowment is managed by savvy members. Sunday worship is supported by a team of creative souls. Social justice endeavors benefit from the experience of seasoned activists. Membership and Social Activities are organized by folks for whom “radical welcome” is a way of life.
A Trio of Lay Preachers
The 2019-20 year will see a cohort of three lay preachers sharing their wisdom from the pulpit. Representing three generations of Davies women, the team will work together to support and challenge each other as they craft worship services that reflect the diverse interests and needs of the community.
Each member of the team will take the pulpit three times during the course of the year, giving the congregation and visitors a chance to know them, to learn from them, and to benefit from their unique wisdom and insight.
