Our Minister

Rev. Paul Langston-Daley, ordained in 1997, is a graduate of Andover Newton Theological School and the International Institute for Restorative Practices. He has served congregations in the north east, on the west coast and in the southwest, and brings a broad range of experience to this ministry. He is an organizer and an activist with a passion for social justice. Rev. Paul comes to Bell Street following his work at the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, an international human rights organization. Rev. Paul brings his background in prophetic preaching, organizing and congregational consulting to Bell Street.

He writes:
“We are living in difficult times my friends, and we need all the strength and reinforcement we can get, from one another, and from the great Spirit of Love. I hope to support a process of discovery, for members and friends of this church and for the larger community, to bring your talents, skills and passions to bear as we seek to manifest the world we envision, even as we struggle in the world as it is.

In the coming year there will be opportunities for welcoming, deepening, engaging and giving. I look forward to this process with you all, and to building strong relationships.
May we provide a harbor of hope and care in this ‘bruised and hurting world’.”
