February 2019 Temporarily Yours by Reverend Beth Miller

Blog category: 


As I write this, it’s been a week since I took up the mantle of temporary or pre-interim interim Senior Minister here at UCBR and it’s already a joy to be serving you. So far I’ve discovered strong and committed lay leaders, warm and welcoming congregants, lively worship with excellent music, and a very capable and dedicated staff ready to work with this new kid on the playground.  I’ve also discovered king cake, a new treat for me, and am slowly learning about the complexity of Mardi Gras and its overwhelmingly numerous traditions and events. The king cake babies were not in the cake, but left for me as a gift on my desk. I think that means I have to host a party, right? I’ll get back to you on that.  

I thank you for your warm welcome and look forward to getting to know as many of you as possible over these next six months. Whether about church business, a personal concern, or just to get to know each other, I welcome you to visit me at church or meet me for coffee somewhere. I’m in the office Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The specific hours vary, so it’s best to make an appointment. You can reach me at or my church office phone, 225-926-2212. Meanwhile, I hope to see you at church.
