Sermon Award Winner Announced
We are excited to announce the winner of the 2017 UUWF “Justice for Women and Girls” Sermon Award. Congratulations, Erin J. Walter!
Erin serves as the Intern Minister at Wildflower Church in Austin, Texas, and her ministry is rooted in the powerful connection between the arts, justice movements, and multicultural community. She leads “Zumba for Body and Spirit” at Wildflower and St. Edward’s University, plays bass in the queer rock band Butch County, and serves as a field advisor to interfaith, young adult arts-and-justice ministry The Sanctuaries – D.C. A married mother of two with a background in newspaper reporting, Erin is in her final semester of study at Meadville Lombard Theological School, the UU seminary in Chicago. After graduation, she plans to continue leading arts-and-justice community ministry in Central Texas. Two of Erin’s favorite things are Mexican food and live band karaoke. She will go before the Unitarian Universalist Ministerial Fellowship Committee in Boston this March.
Erin’s sermon “From Eve to Hillary” will be featured at General Assembly in New Orleans this June. More details to come.
