About the Rev. Hinds

Hello! I am a native Midwesterner, originally from Duluth, MN, and a lifelong Unitarian Universalist. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and my Masters of Divinity Degree from Andover Newton Theological School in Newton, Massachusetts. I am deeply rooted in our UU tradition and radically open to the future of our faith.

I love to discuss religion, theology, and books of all kinds. I love music, singing, cooking, baking and the outdoors (especially the Great Northwoods!). Please call or come visit anytime – my door is always open!

About David

I am originally from Florida and have lived in Iowa since 1983. I have been married to Karen for 30+ years and we have raised five children. I hold a Master of Divinity degree from St Paul School of Theology in Kansas City. I served United Methodist churches as a pastor for 12 years.

I enjoy reading, watching a little TV, and playing board and word games like Quiddler, Five Second Rule, trivia and such. I also love college sports. Growing up in Florida I still love and support the University of Florida Gators. I occasionally get the opportunity to travel and watch the Gators play. I’ve been very fortunate to watch Gator teams win three of our most recent national championships.

I also love the ocean. I grew up near the Atlantic and it is fascinating and relaxing to sit and watch the waves as they crash into the shore.
