The Rev. Christine Robinson will be (virtually) filling our pulpit three times a month for the next 7 months. She lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she is the Minister Emerita of the First Unitarian Church, a church she served for nearly 30 years before retiring in 2017. Since then she has worked part time as a church consultant, ministry mentor, and, for the last 8 months, a virtual preacher.
Christine was raised a UU in the Washington DC suburbs, studied classical music in Ohio, and moved to Boston to attend the Boston University School of Theology. She entered the UU ministry when women ministers were allowed but not necessarily welcomed and feels that the work of making space for women in ministry was very meaningful. Christine considers herself an agnostic theist (She’ll tell us about that this Spring!) and gains inspiration from poetry, popular music, and the Tao Te Ching. She is married to William Baker and they are the parents of a grown son. She is an urban gardener and fabric craftsperson who is looking forward to getting back to preaching, her favorite part of ministry!
