Karen Van Fossan, UU Minister

Many of the world’s religious traditions seek to understand and alleviate human suffering; suffering being hurt or in pain, remains one of the recurring themes of human life. Often, along with suffering, we also show great resilience , the capacity to survive and even thrive. What does healing look like? How does healing happen?
A long-time member of our congregation, Karen Van Fossan recently began serving as our minister, after graduating from United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities this year. In addition to her ministerial duties, she serves the larger community as a pastoral counselor and advocate for the prevention of childhood abuse.
