October 3rd service, Rev. Amy Brooks on “Living Into Our Potential”

Rev. Amy E. Brooks presents us with”Living into Our Potential”—We all want to be our best and be a part of something that makes a difference.  Our religious community is a place that can challenge and help us to live into our best selves.  Likewise, our religious community has a mission we hope will be realized.  How do our personal spiritual growth and congregational mission work together to help us live into our potential as individuals and as a community.
Rev. Amy E. Brooks is a Community Minister in the Unitarian Universalist Association, affiliated with the UU Church of Charlotte.  She worked for many years with the Regional AIDS Interfaith Network in Charlotte,  providing pastoral care and education .  Amy is currently enrolled in the GreenFaith Fellowship Program to explore and develop an environmental ministry while providing sabbatical ministry support to several area UU congregations.  She and her husband Chris enjoy an ongoing interest in local, organic food, cooking (and eating) delicious food.  They are particularly enamored with their daughter Evelyn who recently celebrated her second birthday.
