The Reverend Doug Wadkins, now in his 13th year and the longest settled minister at the Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship, has notified the congregation that this will be his last year serving as minister of BUF. “Throughout this year, my underlying goal is to be deeply present and minister from a place of courage, compassion and integrity with (the congregation), in keeping with our many years of wonderful, powerful and transformative work together,” Doug said in his letter of notification. He plans to stay through the end of June 2012. Details about a send off party and celebration of his work at BUF will be publicized closer to springtime.
