     On this website you will see references to

           Unitarian Universalism. 

       I have served Unitarian Universalist

       churches for over 20 years and it is my faith

       tradition, which you will see referenced in my

          Professional Portfolio below.  


     I am a Unitarian Universalist Affiliated

      Lay Community Minister with

     United First Parish Church, The Church of the

       Presidents, in Quincy, Massachusetts USA. 

     For those in Scotland, you may not know about

      this faith tradition, as it is not as common as other

       faiths in the UK.  Here is a very brief explanation:


     Unitarians belief that reason, and not

     creed, defines the search for truth and meaning.

      Universalists believe that God

         embraces all people equally.  

      Unitarian Universalists believe that truth and

        spiritual meaning can be found in all faiths.

         Unity in One Love. 



   Synchronicity is a term originally coined

   by psychologist Carl Jung that refers to

   "deeply meaningful coincidences

      which mysteriously occur in your life" 



A Focaliser is a person in a leadership position who focuses the group mind and heart energy

for the purpose of both personal and group expansion
