Introducing a new media blogger

It’s my pleasure to announce that beginning today, UUs in the Media will be written by the Rev. Christian Schmidt.

Christian has worked at UU World since 2010 and will become the minister of First Parish in Malden, Mass., in August.

Christian is a graduate of Andover Newton Theological School and the University of Houston, and he worked as a reporter and editor for daily newspapers before beginning preparation for the ministry. He has a passion for Unitarian Universalism and communications, and also serves as a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Massachusetts Bay District board of trustees.

You may already know Christian from his blog, afreefaith.com. He lives in Malden, Mass., with his wife, Kristin, and their son.
