Carter Smith speaking

Carter Smith is a current seminarian at Harvard Divinity School and a ministerial aspirant with the UUA.

On Sunday, August 18, she will preach about her experiences working at a summer meals program hosted by a Presbyterian Church in South Boston. Reflecting on this challenging and fruitful summer, she asks: what does it mean to truly have a social justice mission as a faith community? How do we create and model relational ministry? How do we know that our work is “worth it” in the end? And where is the divine in it all?
