"Radical Gifts; Radical Faith"
Rev. Dr. Christine Tata

An exploration of the mystery of altruism — is it a religious impulse?
A sociological imperative? Or a psychological need to connect with others with love and self-sacrifice?

Drawing upon recent research, ancient intuition, and real-life examples, Christine sheds light on how we can serve the world and heal ourselves at the same time.

Rev.Dr.Christine Tata
Rev. Dr. Christine Tata

Dr. Tata has lifelong ties to Unitarian Universalism, from her UU upbringing in the Texas Bible Belt to her service for UUA congregations, as well as in the progressive United Church of Christ, in which she is ordained. She served as senior pastor for UCC churches in Dallas and California, and was later called to be Associate Pastor for Worship on the startup team for the innovative Pathways UU congregation.

As a Juilliard-trained former actress with a PhD in rhetoric and literary studies, she has a wide-ranging interest in communicating important messages in engaging ways, and she is a frequent guest preacher in area UU pulpits. She recently facilitated the NTUUC-supported Wide Awake Worship workshop, which explored fresh ways for liberal congregations to create meaningful space/time and authentic celebrations of worship. Apart from her “day job” as director of policy administration at an academic medical center in Dallas, Christine continues to seek out elusive signs of ultimate meaning and does what she can to inspire and affirm liberal seekers and believers.
