Remembering Ric Masten

Ric Masten passed away ten years ago in May of 2008. A few months before his death Rev. Steve Edington and Ric got out a book they’d collaborated on about Ric’s unique ministry within our UU movement titled “Troubadour and Poet–The Magical Ministry of Ric Masten.” Steve will return to the UUCPA to share his thoughts on the continuing significance of Ric’s ministry for us ten years after his passing.

America’s Mission Statement


In our UU churches, we increasingly aspire to mission statements that can guide us in all our actions and keep us focused on our ideals. What if we ran our country in the same way? What would America’s mission statement look like? Surprise! — it’s already right under our noses, just waiting to be lifted up in time for this year’s July 4th. Music: Ruth Huber, piano
