Rev. Stephen Kendrick has been UU minister for nearly twenty-five years. He came to Boston in 2001, successor to Rev. Rhys Williams’ forty-year ministry at First Church. Stephen’s hopes are to grow the congregation in spirit and warmth, and to make First Church a visible and strong progressive voice in Boston life.
Rev. Kendrick has served as minister at the Universalist Church of West Hartford, Connecticut; the Unitarian Universalist Society of Howard County (now named Columbia), Maryland; the Unitarian Church of York, Pennsylvania; and Unitarian chapels in the Midlands, England. His partner is Elizabeth Kendrick, a social worker, and he is the happy father of Paul, Anna, and Elizabeth.
Stephen is the author of Holy Clues and Night Watch (Pantheon) and most recently with his son Paul, Sarah’s Long Walk (Beacon Press).
