Alex Jensen is a Master of Divinity student and Dean’s Fellow at Harvard Divinity School studying for Unitarian Universalist ordination and ministry. He has been a Unitarian Universalist since junior high school and felt called to ministry in high school. Alex graduated summa cum laude in 2018 from California State University, Monterey Bay with a B.A. in Human Communication, an emphasis in peace studies, and a minor in music.

This Sunday is National Friendship Day! In this spirit, we’ll explore what it means to belong authentically in our faith. We’ll discuss ways of authentically showing up for friends and for one another in our communities and congregations. Come feel held in community as we examine friendship and look for how to better live out our shared values.
