Westside Welcomes Carter Smith, Our New Minister!
The Board and the Search Committee are extremely pleased to introduce Carter Smith (she, her pronouns) as our half time contract minister beginning March 1. Carter has been granted Preliminary Fellowship by the UUA and will be ordained by her home congregation in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in May. At that time, she will formally take on the title of Reverend.
We were impressed with Carter’s integrity, her curiosity about all things WSUU, her ability to problem solve, to connect with people of all ages and backgrounds, her love of Unitarian Universalism, her actions that demonstrate a real commitment to equity and her all around thoughtfulness. She is a good preacher. With these experiences and others, Carter has served and learned from a variety of places in the wider faith and is looking forward to continuing her ministry here at Westside.
