Associate Speakers
Our five Associate Speakers, who lead three to five Unitarian-Universalist second and fourth Sunday programs, are Sandra Ingham, a UU minister recently associated with Prairie Society UU in west Madison; Robin Proud, regular speaker at Prairie Unitarian Universalist Society, Madison and guest speaker for ten UU congregations in Minnesota and Wisconsin; Dr. Penny Andrews is semi-retired. She is a current member of the Church of the Larger Fellowship and was one of the founding members of James Reed UU Congregation in 1994. She attended the University of Creation Spirituality founded by Matthew Fox and was ordained as an Interfaith Minister. Penny has also served as a board certified hospital and hospice chaplain over the last 15 years. She has also studied Soto Zen and is a Lay Minister in that tradition; Pema Lisa Antoniotti has been ordained in the Buddhist tradition for over 10 years. She leads various programs at Joyful Path Meditation and Healing Center. She also teaches secular meditation, Yoga, and other spiritual programs in the larger community. Pema has over 10 years of experience in offering spiritual direction and postoral counseling to a diverse group of individuals, including those of no faith tradition. She also leads Buddhist services at Oxford prison, where the group includes Muslims, Native Americans, Catholics, Protestants and Buddhists, and Rob Brink, who holds a Master in Div. Theology from the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Ia. From 2000 until 2009 he was an Associate Minister at two churches in Wisconsin. His last job in the ministry was from 2009 to 2014 at the First Congregational Church, Saugatuck, MI as a Senior Minister. After that, in Rob's own words, "Some pastors can drink. Some can cuss. But the one thing pastors aren’t allowed to say is, 'You know what? I don’t believe this any more.' When doubts began to interfere with work, I left rather than hurt the church. Once I was free to think my own thoughts, I accepted that I’m an atheist, and happy to be one." He describes himself as a a follower of the Humanist Manifesto III.
