We are happy and proud to announce that our new minister, Rev. Brian J. Mason, will be joining UU Wausau on August 1, 2017.
Brian has served as the Resident Chaplain at St. Louis University Hospital and Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, MO, where he currently lives with his wife Sarah and their 5 year old daughter, Ellie. He went to seminary at Eden Theological Seminary in St Louis, and was the Lewis Ministerial Intern at First Unitarian Church of St. Louis from 2015-2016. He was ordained by that church on Sunday, April 23rd of this year.
When describing his “call to ministry,” Brian wrote the following in his biographical sketch:
“It’s a mysterious circumstance to describe in many ways, but back in 2008, while visiting St. Simons Island, Georgia, I felt something stir in my heart. I realized that I would live out the rest of my life serving and working alongside people who, just like me, dream of an equitable world, a world of justice, righteousness, and peace; a world of joy and appreciation.”
