New Pastoral Care leader join the Black Lives of UU Organizing Collective

We are so excited to announce the addition of Adam Dyer to the Black Lives of UU Organizing Collective. Adam joins BLUU to focus specifically on pastoral care needs and other theologically based projects.

We are particularly overjoyed that Adam is joining the collective in advance of the March 9-12 BLUU Convening.

Full information about both Adam can be found below:

Adam is a Unitarian Universalist Candidate for the Ministry and this spring he will complete his M.Div. at the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, California.  His life's work focuses on disrupting the lingering effects of colonialism on modern culture.  Specifically, he is committed to: liberating faith and spirituality from biases that stem from exclusively privileged world views; exploring healthy concepts of how people experience their bodies as expressions of their lived experience; and working to counter the social oppression that is entrenched in traditional Western economic models.  Upon graduation, he will also receive a Certificate in Sexuality and Religion for which he has studied and worked closely with leaders in LGBTQ communities and youth in sexuality education.   

Adam sees his ministry developing out of his long held belief in the shared beauty and power of human bodies and his belief that the ability to make healthy, informed choices and decisions about our bodies is at the heart of the divine gift of human life.
 
Born in New York City and raised in Framingham, Massachusetts, Adam attended college at Princeton University where he majored in English Literature and Creative Writing. Early on, he pursued a performing arts career which allowed me to travel around the globe working as a cruise director.  Ultimately, Adam had the great fortune to appear in the original Broadway company of Ragtime the Musical. Prior to pursuing the ministry, he became a well known personal trainer, fitness instructor and massage therapist.  Learn more about his journey on the Life Beyond Ministry page.
