Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Area Church of Sherborn’s Faith Formation blog! This blog is for parents seeking oxygen in the midst of trying to raise faithful kids. This blog is for anyone who is interested in the faith formation of adults, children and youth in the context of a busy and vibrant suburban Unitarian Universalist church and in the context of our busy and vibrant lives in the world outside the church. We will use this blog to promote Unitarian Universalist faith formation in our congregation and beyond. It is written and updated by Rev. Robin Bartlett, Interim Director of Religious Education.

Robin was born and raised Unitarian Universalist in Concord, NH. She has a BA in communications and women’s studies from UMass, Amherst, a MA in Counseling/Psychology from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA, and graduated from the Boston University School of Theology in the Spring of 2013 with a Masters of Divinity.

Previously, Robin interned and worked in day and residential treatment programs as a mental health clinician for children with social, emotional and behavioral issues. She has served our denomination as the Assistant to the Ministerial Fellowship Committee of the UUA, Youth Advisor at First Church in Boston, District Youth Coordinator of the Massachusetts Bay District of UU Churches, and as the Director of Religious Education at First Parish in Milton, where she served for six years. Robin co-led the Multigenerational Ministry track at the UUA’s 2009 UU University at General Assembly with her colleague the Rev. Parisa Parsa and served on the UUA’s Youth Ministry Working Group.
Robin is passionate about multigenerational and multicultural ministry, preaching, children’s worship, singing, prayer, our Unitarian and Universalist theological traditions, Jesus and his ministry, and her hilarious and hammy children Cecilia, 8 and Eloisa, 4, and Isaac, baby. Robin has lived in Boston for 13 years, and currently resides in the awesome neighborhood of Roslindale Village where she eats a lot of sushi, and looks around for the ultimate place to get cheap mani/pedis with the best massage chairs.
