Deepening Faith. Living Well. Enacting Justice.

Lifespan Faith Development by Justin Butterworth

Justin ButterworthI am sad, yet excited, to share my final newsletter column with you as Interim Lifespan Faith Development Director.  This past half-year has given me incredible insight, wisdom, and experience in working with the youth of our fine congregation at UUCB.  In many ways, I am saddened that I will not be continuing in this role—I will cherish the experiences, laughs, and even the frustrations.  On the other hand, I am extremely thrilled and enthused that our new DRE, Janen, will be taking over this role.  From my conversations with her, she will be a great fit, and will bring a renewed energy and enthusiasm to our Lifespan Faith Development program.  I will be assisted her in making the transition into her new role during the first part of September.

She has asked me to gather teachers/interested to-be teachers for a teacher’s training meeting and collaborative discussion on Wednesday, September 4th, from 6-8 PM.  Please contact me at if you are interested in attending to learn more about her ideas, and being trained as a teacher at UUCB.  I know that Janen will be needing a great deal of support to revitalize our RE programming at UUCB, so please plan on attending!

Again, it has been an absolute joy to serve in this role at UUCB.  I have appreciated all the positive feedback, and will continue to do so.  The role of an interim director is only to serve for a short time, and this has been a blessing to step into a leadership role at UUCB.  I look forward to continue working with the RE programming and beyond at UUCB after I step down.

On a final note, the Lifespan Faith Development programming at UUCB will only be successful if the entire community steps up to support our various endeavors.  I know we as a congregation are capable of moving and shaking our RE programming into a new, fresh era.  I hope you each decide to step up to necessary tasks that will be arriving soon.

Much love and care,
