Awareness of One Another
By Jon Sievert
The Rev. Patrice Curtis, senior minister at the Unitarian Universalists of Clearwater, Florida, will discuss “Awareness of One Another” on Sunday, November 8. Awareness of one another is a force that can bring healing and renewal. Why should we see each other anew?

Rev. Curtis grew up in Seattle, unable to fully accept the tenets of Christianity that she eventually abandoned in her 20s. She practiced meditation and Zen Buddhism on the journey to craft her own mystical-humanist theology. In her 40s Curtis discovered Unitarianism-Universalism and earned a masters of divinity at Starr Kind School for Ministry. “I am very comfortable in exploring and sharing a range of wisdom from world religions,” she said. Curtis’s lifelong commitment to social justice drew her to work as an international aid worker at a refugee camp in the Sudan and later in Bosnia at the end of its civil war. Work with a displaced and war-shattered population led to “compassion fatigue” after a year in this worn-torn country.
