“Ctrl Z”

Would you like to be able to “undo” anything as you head into the new year? Amy Zucker Morgenstern, former CVUUS ministerial intern in its early days, led us from CA.

She served as minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Rutland for four years and has been Minister at Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto, California since 2003. We’ll collect for 350.org this month.

About Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern

Amy grew up in CT in the Conservative Jewish tradition. She majored in Studio Art and Religion at Wesleyan Univ, traveled to India and Nepal on a Buddhist Studies Program, and after teaching for two years, entered the M.A./Ph.D.  program in Religion at Syracuse University. She began attending the Unitarian Universalist church in 1992 and left Syracuse after receiving her M.A. in order to follow the call into the ministry.  She graduated from Harvard Divinity School in 2000, was ordained the same year, and served as minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Rutland, VT, for four years. She was called to the parish minister position at Universalist Church of Palo Alto,   California in 2003. Amy’s favorite non-ministry pursuits are reading (scifi, mysteries, general fiction, essays), cooking, watching movies, making and looking at art, enjoying good food and conversation with friends, and petting her cat.  Most of all she loves to spend time with her wife Joy and their young daughter.
