Unitarian Universalist Minister

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”- James Baldwin

My call to Ministry is not mine, as I am not listening to a call, as much as I feel like I am allowing myself to honor the pull of something much stronger than I and which started long before I ever showed up.” - Rev. Anthony Mtuaswa Johnson
