A2U2 members and friends, 

Many of you have asked over the past year if I would or could stay on as your long term minister. And I have been quite adamant that I would be leaving at the end of this church year. My supports at the UUA and other wise colleagues and mentors held me in a time of discernment, and with time my call became very clear. What I now know to be true is that I am called to this work of Developmental Ministry, here at Allen Avenue, with all of you. I am excited for the relationship deepening and messy, holy shared ministry that lies ahead for us. It is a joy to be your minister. 

In faith,

Reverend Tara
