Greetings From Rev. Lara Cowtan!

Greetings Unitarian Church of Vancouver!

I am Reverend Lara Cowtan, and I am delighted and honored to have been hired as your interim minister, to serve you for a two-year transition period. I just wanted to reach out and say hello to you from Winnipeg, where I am currently serving as a hospital chaplain. This has been a year of transition for me as well, as I’ve moved back to Canada after living in Europe since 2005.

Soon I will set out West, over the prairies and across the mountains to join you in Vancouver. I am excited and looking forward to meeting all of you, to being a part of your thriving and welcoming community, and to working with you as we learn and grow together.
These are challenging and complicated times, and it helps to have something to look forward to.

This transitional ministry time is an exciting opportunity for the congregation to engage in reflecting on where you have come from, all you’ve accomplished, then envisioning and reaching towards the future. It is a time of infinite possibilities, and I can’t wait to explore them with you.

I’ll arrive at the end of July and begin in August with meetings to get to know you and prepare for the start of our first year together.
Wishing you all a safe and healthy summer.

Rev. Lara
