Waiting for Jesus and Superman 

January 29, 2023 | 9:00 am & 11:00 am


New Members ceremony.

Today’s Topic:

What stories do we tell ourselves to make sense of the ever-uncertain world? What saviors do we search for in calamity? And how might we be better served as people of covenantal faith if we center ourselves in questions and wonder?  

Beth Monhollen has been a member of the First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee since 2013. It was through her engagement here that she began to discern a call to ministry that would allow her to use skills gained as a writer, actor and educator for the spiritual development of others. She enrolled in the Master of Divinity program at Meadville Lombard Theological School in the fall of 2020 and will graduate in May 2023, at which point she will be officially welcomed into Preliminary Fellowship. She is currently serving as the ministerial intern at WellSprings UU in Chester County, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia. Beth grounds her theology on experiencing the divine through our interconnections and  interdependence with one another and in fostering mutuality in all our relationships.
