Rev. Sean Parker Dennison Featured in UU World

In November, in the article “Congregations Welcome Transgender People,” the UU World reported on welcoming experiences many transgender people have in Unitarian Universalist congregations.

The article included a discussion of Rev. Sean Parker Dennison’s experience being called as the minister of the South Valley Unitarian Universalist Society in Salt Lake City, Utah. John C. Hilke, co-president of the congregation, is quoted as saying, “Calling Sean as minister helped get our message out that we are an intentionally diverse congregation. … We wanted someone who would be a good speaker, who would do all the things a minister is supposed to do. As far as I know gender was beside the point. This is consistent with the way the congregation has been positioning itself for some time. This is all positive for us.”
