Manchester church welcomes interim minister
MANCHESTER — The Unitarian Universalist Church of Manchester will welcome the Rev. Steve Edington as its interim minister on Sunday at 10 a.m.
All are invited to help welcome Edington at 10 a.m. in the church sanctuary. Refreshments will be served in the fellowship hall after services.
Edington will serve as interim minister for the church for its 2012-2013 church year as the congregation searches for a permanently settled minister.
Earlier this year, Edington completed a 24-year ministry with the Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashua. He has also served UU congregations in Stony Brook, N.Y., and Rockland, Maine.
A native of West Virginia, he received his Master of Divinity degree from the Colgate Rochester Divinity School of Rochester, N.Y., and was originally ordained as an American Baptist. He served as a campus minister at two Midwestern universities before entering the UU parish ministry.
Edington is the author of four books: “Kerouac’s Nashua Connection,” “The Beat Face of God: The Beat Generation Writers as Spirit Guides,” “Troubadour and Poet: The Magical Ministry of Ric Masten” and “Bring Your Own God: The Spirituality of Woody Guthrie.”
Edington released a message of welcome as the new head of the Manchester church that stated, in part, “To come into a UU congregation is to join with a community of seekers and explorers who are looking for deeper meanings in their lives, as well as stronger and deeper human connections. We seek to offer these things through worship, religious education for all ages, social activities, and various other opportunities for spiritual growth.”
