Reverend Sharon K. Dittmar
American society has acculturated us to static and narrowly defined ideas about how our bodies should look and function. There are norms for everything from weight to brain functioning. Many of us spend a good deal of time trying to meet these norms in defiance of our beautiful diversity, the many ways human bodies naturally grow, change, and function. Please join Reverend Dittmar for a sermon that uplifts and celebrates bodies and humanity as we find them.

Reverend Dittmar graduated from Harvard Divinity School in 1997. She served one year as Interim Minister at the Gathering at Northern Hills (Cincinnati, OH 1997-1998), and eighteen years as Minister at First Unitarian Church of Cincinnati (1998-2016). Since 2016 she has worked as Congregational Life Field Staff with the MidAmerica Region of the UUA. She is primary contact for thirty-one program-sized congregations in the MidAmerica Region and specializes in vibrant congregational cultures, Board and lay leadership development, conflict transformation, stewardship, as well as congregational management and supervision. She has three grown children, a husband, too many household projects, and a love of gardening, though not nearly enough understanding about how green things grow (and too often die).
