The Unitarian Universalist Association presented its annual Distinguished Service Award to former UUMA president, Rev. Dr. Kenneth Torquil MacLean. Rev. MacLean has had an impressive career serving churches in Juneau, AK; Rancho Mirage, CA; Bethesda, MD; Knoxville TN; and West Roxbury, MA. In 2012 he was named Minister Emeritus from the UU Church of the Desert in Rancho Mirage. He has served the denomination from 1994-1999 as Special Interfaith Assistant at the UUA. Rev. MacLean has served his colleagues as President of the UUMA from 1975-75 and has since served on a number of committees - currently the Stewardship & Development Team. The Annual Award for Distinguished Service to the Cause of Unitarian Universalism is one of the most prestigious awards given by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Candidates for this award have, over a considerable period of time, strengthened the institutions of our Unitarian Universalist denomination or clarified our message in an extraordinary way. In short, they have exemplified what Unitarian Universalism (UUism) stands for. Congratulations Ken!
