Dear Ones –

I am grateful and delighted that our Board of Trustees has hired Rev. Denise Cawley to be your full-time minister from February through July of next year, and I am very happy that she and I will work together as co-ministers through December and January.  It’s been a pleasure to work with Rev. Denise since last March, to witness her good working relationships with our church staff, and to see so many of you responding beautifully to her worship leadership and pastoral care.

In addition to wonderful ministry skills, Rev. Denise brings us a deep well of experience from the world of non-profit organizations in our greater Milwaukee area as well as her perspective as someone with multiple marginalized identities.  As we enter into the last months of my ministry with you, I feel very blessed to know that you will be in good hands when I retire at the end of January.  I look forward to seeing you soon and enjoying the holidays together as UUCW begins the graceful process of moving into the next phase of a beautiful future.

Blessings to you,
Reverend Suzelle Lynch
