Health, Healing and Illness
 
This Sunday, we welcome Tiffany Sapp back to the pulpit. Join us!
Tiffany Sapp is an Aspirant in the UUA's ministerial certification process, and the former Religious Exploration Coordinator at the UU Fellowship of Bay County.  She is currently learning how to be a "country girl" in Bonifay, FL while completing her UU Studies Certificate online with the Starr King School for the ministry. Tiffany grew up in multi-denominational Protestant Military Base chapels, and completed her Masters of Divinity from Duke Divinity school in 2003 with the intention of becoming a United Methodist minister before she discovered that wasn't the right path for her.
