I am happy to write this Testimonial for Rev. Katie Romano Griffin; I base my remarks on my experience of having served on her supervisory committee at All Faiths Unitarian Congregation, where she was assigned prior to graduation from the Meadville Lombard School. I was impressed with her commitment and vision and goal achieving energy to fulfill the requirements and deal with the stresses of the process along with her personal life responsibilities. She possesses a passion for ministry….and her commitment is apparent as soon as you meet her. This is grounded in her empathetic understanding of others and belief in the human capacity to make a difference. To quote the old Universalist “Avowal of Faith”, “the power of people of goodwill and sacrificial spirit to overcome all evil and progressively establish the Kingdom of God.” As a person grounded in the history of the “Universalist Church of America” I appreciated her respect for this part of the UUA heritage and heard its values of “Justice, Equality, and Human Rights” articulated in her sermons. I expected great things from Katie and she is well on her way. I am happy and proud to write this Testimonial; for a person, I came to know as a sincere and gifted professional minister.
