5 Ministers of Color

I was struck by the MFC report which noted that “5 Ministers of Color were either moved to inactive status or removed from fellowship by inactivity or by their request.” [April MFC Report to Board]  I don’t doubt the MFC is following protocol and really have no quarrel here.  But it is a significant number given the 60 or so active UU ministers of color that I tracked in 2006.  That would be about 12%.

Great to see DRUUMM member and soon-to-be Rev…Jacqueline Duhart will be student liaison to MFC.  Great to see the MFC has so many POC on their review board, really amazing given where the MFC was when I first started paying attention back in 1997.  Lastly, it was a little sad to read about a candidate “losing it”, and that this was reported so widely to the Board.  Well and now I’m posting it on my blog.  Hmm…

  1. It’s an odd formulation, because I think of inactive status — I’m in that boat — certainly feels different than losing fellowship. More of a reality of the poor settlement market. So I wonder how many of which it is.
