I've been meaning to post something about this for awhile. But never got around to it. But now is a good time as the old job has ended and the new is about to begin. My mother has ended her 9 or so year time as a pastor in Westfield, Massachusetts and is starting a new position as Acting Association Minister for the Southwest Ohio Northern Kentucky Association of the Ohio Conference of the United Church of Christ. (Wow, that's a mouthful. Here is their website.)
The official announcement was in their April 18th Newsletter (pdf):
At its most recent meeting, SONKA’s Association Covenant Team (ACT) voted unanimously to call Rev. Ruth Brandon to be our Acting Association Minister.She bought a house in Ohio a few weeks ago, and she and Sara (her dog) arrived in Ohio a little over 24 hours ago. The moving truck arrives later today. So she's getting settled.
Ruth currently lives in Massachusetts, where she has been pastoring a church since 1997. Prior experiences include two interim pastorates, Professor of Ethics at Ricatla United Seminary and pastor of Cidade Congregational Church in Mozambique, Africa, and Associate Conf erence Minister of the Central Atlantic Conference. Ruth will be assuming her ministry with SONKA July 1, 2006.
