A liberal religious voice in the Central Valley since 1953.
Rev. Grace Simons came to us from Los Alamos, New Mexico in 2001. She holds both a B.A. and Certificate in Education from UC Berkeley and a Master's of Divinity from Starr King School for the Ministry. Married for over forty years, with two grown children and four grandchildren, she leads a busy life. She likes to hike, is an avid gardener and sings with the Masterworks Chorus.
In 1967 both she and her husband served as teachers in the Peace Corps in Northern Nigeria. Upon their return to the USA, they moved to Washington, D.C., where she began teaching, her husband completed his Ph.D. studies, and their first child was born. It was there that they first became involved in a UU church. They then moved to Los Alamos, where they lived for over twenty-five years. She has been active in the UU church there throughout the entire time. In 1999 she retired from teaching, and began her work as a minister.
rev. Grace's ministry draws from all six of the UU Sources. She believes in the need to speak the truth with love and in the importance of a sense of humor.
