Interdependence in Real Life

In a culture that continually reinforces independence, we can easily forget our connectedness and act as if we live in vacuums. Our theology of interdependence invites an ethic of social change.

Liesl Dees described herself for many years as a member of the church of the “big blue dome,” and her love of the outdoors led her to move to Farmington, New Mexico in 1997. She found a spiritual home that she didn’t even know she was looking for at the San Juan Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in the early 2000s. Her long spiritual and religious journey has led her to pursue a Masters of Divinity degree at Starr King School for the Ministry and UUA Aspirant status. She has worked at San Juan College since 2000 and will retire as Director of Continuing Education at the end of April to focus on her ministerial path.
