In his “old life,” he was an actor, theater director, and college teacher. He taught at Emerson College in Boston for 20 plus years – full- and part-time – both in the Division of Performing Arts and the Division of Writing, Literature & Publishing.
In May of 2009, Tim received his Master of Divinity degree from Andover Newton Theological School. He completed my two-year ministerial internship at First Church in Boston in June, and was the summer minister at the UU Congregation of Reading in July and August of 2010. He was ordained at First Church in Boston May 22, 2011, and welcomed into preliminary fellowship by the Unitarian Universalist Minister’s Association at General Assembly in Charlotte NC in June. He’s thrilled to become a UU minister before getting too old to remember where he put my glasses.
Tim is married to Ann Gary, who is on the board of the Unitarian Universalist Partner Church Council, which supports relationships between congregations in North America and those in Transylvania Romania, the Kasi Hills of north eastern India, the Philippines, and Africa. They have a 18 year-old son, Alex, who a very good epee fencer, and an eight year-old Australian terrier, Baci, who’s a very good eater and barker.
Tim is especially interested in people and their stories. He believes we need to tell one another our stories and listen deeply to the stories of others. He’s also interested in spirituality and the arts, and tries to find ways to use the many forms of applied, performance, and language arts to open pathways for sensing and expressing our connection with the Mysterious Source of Being.
“The Doolittle Home is such a comfortable place. It really has the feeling of ‘home.’ The residents all tell me how comfortable and happy they are there. It’s easy to see that they are safe and well taken care of physically, and it’s a pleasure to share in their spiritual time by leading some of their Chapel services.”
Since 1915, Doolittle Home provides top of the line care for elders. If you would like a personal tour, call DeAnna Willis 508.543.2694. Click Here For Testimonial
