Minister of the Week:
Rev. John Gibbons
First Parish of Bedford, UU

RTev. John GibbonsJohn Gibbons came to Bedford in 1990 after a decade as minister to the Unitarian Congregation in Mendon and Uxbridge, MA. Ordained in 1980, he is a graduate of the Harvard Divinity School and holds an undergraduate degree in religion and political science from Tufts University. He is married to Sue Baldauf, a family therapist; and they have one son, Eric.  In previous lifetimes John was a public school teacher, union organizer, counselor at a halfway house for teenage girls, apprentice to a Mexican curandera (healer-woman), and a salesman of pansies and parsley.

He is very involved in Bedford and metropolitan Boston, a participant in interfaith roundtables, chaplain to the Bedford Minutemen, a founding member of the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization, the Tuckerman Coalition, and the Interfaith Alliance. He also participates actively in the life of the Unitarian Universalist Association, is past president of the UU Partner Church Council, former board chair of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, and is current chair of UUSC's Ministerial Leadership Network. First Parish Bedford was recognized as a "breakthrough congregation" in 2012 by the UUA.

John regards the church as the last, best and most improbable hope for humanity.
