Saltwater’s 2017-2018 Search Team

 January Update…

On schedule, the MST received a list of minister applicants interested in Saltwater UU from the UUA Transitions office January 2. We now have access to their ministerial records and are enjoying the reading! We are extremely pleased with the caliber of our applicants! We are in active communication with them already and are elated to hear them say nice things about Saltwater. So be happy! And keep us and these potential candidates in your thoughts as we continue this intense process of getting to know each other from a distance. Next step, moving a little closer:  Audiovisual interviews over the internet!

What are people saying about us…

My name is Dr. Lorelei Walker and I am a former leader of Health Equity Circle, a student organization at the University of Washington.  We believe health is more than healthcare and organize to push back on the social determinants of health. In 2015, Health Equity Circle and Saltwater Church formed a relationship when Sound Alliance began to organize our members through the Best Starts for Kids Initiative in King County. Out of the 21 institutions involved in the Sound Alliance work, Saltwater Church has by far been the most dedicated, engaged, kind and compassionate source of energy and momentum I have seen demonstrated by an institution. Every single time I engaged in a Sound Alliance event, a compassionate and caring Saltwater team member was there to walk the path with me, bringing insight and energy to the conversation. Saltwater sets a powerful example to other institutions, demonstrating the importance of showing up, having the conversations, and doing the work. Each member exuded a sincere love and concern for community members who are disadvantaged. I’ve visited the church and was immediately surrounded by a feeling of love and safety as if I had found a slice of heaven on earth. Every single experience I have had with a Saltwater team member has been meaningful and engaging. Seriously, this congregation rocks on all accounts.”
