Pulpit Guest–the Rev. Dr. Lee Barker
Our very special pulpit guest this Sunday is the Rev. Dr. Lee Barker, who will be sharing a sermon on the Unitarian Universalist journey on race and equality. A life-long Unitarian Universalist, Lee Barker was elected to the presidency of Meadville Lombard Theological School (Unitarian Universalist) in 2003 and served in that position until his retirement in 2019. During his presidency, the school instituted an innovative contextual learning model that has been since replicated by seminaries throughout the United States. In recognition of his contribution to Unitarian Universalism, he was made President Emeritus by the school’s Board of Trustees. Prior to his presidency, Dr. Barker served for 25 years in the UU parish ministry, and has been a friend of Rev. Alexander for well over 40 years. He and his wife Kristina, a landscape architect, have one daughter, Ava. They make their home in Chicago.
