The three candidates for Unitarian Universalist Association president—the Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, the Rev. Alison Miller, and the Rev. Jeanne Pupke—appeared together for the first time during the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association’s Ministry Days conference.
During the Tuesday afternoon session, titled “UUA Presidential Candidate Action,” UUMA leaders posed a series of questions to the candidates covering topics such as the UUA’s role in partnering with and supporting religious professionals, what ministerial competencies are most important to cultivate for the future of the faith, whether they would use UUA resources to create and support the lifelong development of religious professionals, and whether it should be the UUA’s role to hold congregations accountable for behavior that causes conflict with religious professionals. The candidates finished off the two-hour session by briefly addressing the more general question of what compels them to run for UUA president.
