Our Minister

Our minister is the Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum.  Cindy grew up in Pleasant Ridge, Michigan, and grew up Unitarian Universalist, attending the Birmingham Unitarian Church in Bloomfield Hills.  She received her B.A. in English and Psychology from the University of Michigan, and her M.A. in English from the University of Georgia, where her thesis was titled, Narratives in the AIDS Service Community.  She attended Meadville Lombard Theological School for her D.Min., where her doctoral thesis was on The Future of Unitarian Universalist Feminism: Interviews with Third-Wave Women Ministers.  Cindy held student ministries in Marquette and Houghton, MI, an internship in Milwaukee, WI, and summer ministries in Rockford, IL and Rochester, NY.  Cindy served briefly in Houston, TX, and was ordained as a Unitarian Universalist minister in 2002 by the Unitarian Universalist Society of Gardner, Massachusetts, where she served before becoming our minister in August of 2004.  Cindy lives in the Jackson area along with her husband, Peter Morrison; daughter; and two cats.

Cindy's ministry is grounded in her experience of being raised Unitarian Universalist and seeing the power that Unitarian Universalism has to affect lives and change the world.  She is passionate about religious education, social justice, and diversity, particularly the diverse theologies found in our faith.  As a humanist raised by UU Christians, and having explored and incorporated aspects of feminist theology and Paganism into her life, she believes in weaving together these faiths and others to create a church where we "live our religion" through worship, social mission, and religious education.
