With Rev. Leah Ongiri

Humans have the capacity for both cruelty and kindness, which can lead us either to hope or despair. In such a confused and fractured world, creative imagination can help us embrace our traditions as we move into a shared future.

Rev. Leah Ongiri (she/her) has served congregations in California, New Jersey, Florida, Wisconsin, and Colorado. She is a graduate of Starr King School for the Ministry and coeditor of the Skinner House book Jewish Voices in Unitarian Universalism. In her current ministry, she consults with congregations and coaches clergy who are seeking to develop and support their communities’ spiritual care and ministry teams. Leah is an amateur potter and casual poet. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her four children and spouse. She loves guest preaching and is honored to (virtually) visit UUFC, especially since she got to work under Rev. Tracy when she was an intern minister!
