About Sarah Berel-Harrop:
I’m the intern minister at the Texas Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry and a seminarian at Meadville Lombard Theological School. I grew up UU, and raised two children as UUs, in Houston, Texas, and I’ve been engaged in congregational life in Houston and the Dallas Fort Worth area in many capacities – religious educator, social justice chair, and board leadership. I’m passionate about nurturing groups and communities grounded in relationship and trust that offer alternatives to organizations based in domination and control.
