The congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Churches of Castine, Ellsworth and Belfast will be ordaining Ariel Aaronson-Eves on Sunday, August 15, at 4 p.m., at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Castine. Aaronson-Eves was the Collaborative Ministerial Intern with all three of the congregations. The Rev. Dr. Sofia Betancourt will be preaching.
Aaronson-Eves grew up in Haworth, New Jersey, attending Central Unitarian Church in nearby Paramus. She studied history at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota and later earned a Master of Divinity degree at Starr King School for the Ministry in Berkeley, California.
Aaronson-Eves is a land-based theologian whose work is rooted in the physical experiences of co-creation encountered through farming, entwined with a deep commitment to justice and liberation for all.
She will be working as a spiritual care counselor for hospice in Concord, New Hampshire, and serving as minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Franklin, New Hampshire.
