“Why This Matters”
by Melissa Mummert
There have been countless small Unitarian Universalist fellowships that have come and gone or languished at a nominal size for decades. Too often, people come and people go, and find that what they experience doesn’t begin to touch the longing that they feel for deeper spiritual meaning and personal transformation. In this service, Mummert articulates why Unitarian Unviersalism can be a life-saving faith and why what we are doing here at the UU Lake Norman Fellowship is so vitally important.
Rev. Melissa Mummert is an ordained Unitarian Universalist community minister affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist church of Charlotte. She is currently employed by the Center for Community Transitions facilitating parenting classes at the Mecklenburg County Jail. She has been an outspoken advocate for criminal justice reform, especially calling attention to the rights of children of prisoners. Mummert has produced two documentary films. Her film Perversion of Justice, which chronicle’s mandatory sentencing’s impact on the life of one family, has screened cross the country and won several film festivals. Life Without, her latest project, which was co-directed with eight youth with incarcerated parents, recently debuted in Charlotte. When not working, Mummert can be found reading stories like Llama Llama Red Pajama with her three year old daughter Annie or thoroughly enjoying the company of her husband Jay Leach, minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Charlotte.
