UU Santa Fe and the Interfaith Leadership Alliance of Santa Fe
UU Santa Fe has been part of the Interfaith Leadership Alliance of Santa Fe (previously the Ministerial Alliance) since its founding. The ILA focuses on interfaith collaboration on issues highlighting our shared values―ending hunger and homelessness, speaking out against racism and bullying, organizing for environmental sustainability.
We join together to do what we cannot do alone.―The ILA
Welcome to UU Santa Fe, we’ve been watching for you! Seriously. We are an open-minded, open-hearted spiritual community seeking to bend the world toward justice, sustainability and love and we are always looking for friends and allies to join us on our adventure.
Rev. Gail was born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in
Rochester, Minnesota. She graduated from St. Olaf College, and the
University of Minnesota and then taught elementary school art for a
couple of years. After exploring a degree in aesthetics and critical
theory at the University of Texas at Dallas she sidestepped into
ministry. Since her graduation from Harvard Divinity School in 1995,
Rev. Gail has served UU congregations in Weymouth, Swampscott,
and Cambridge, Massachusetts; Houston, Texas; Duluth, Minnesota
and Santa Fe, New Mexico. That’s six congregations and over a
quarter of a century of ministry!
Rev. Gail has been married to Nathaniel Marriner for 22 years.
Nathaniel works as a physical therapist’s assistant in Santa Fe and is
rehabbing a Jeep truck in his spare time. Gail and Nat are the proud
parents of young adult twins, Isaac and Zoe. In a ministerial capacity,
Rev. Gail is the very active Past President of the Interfaith
Leadership Alliance of Santa Fe where she helps organize interfaith
programs, panels and events. She is an enthusiastic supporter of the
Upstart Crows of Santa Fe Youth Shakespeare Company.
Rev. Gail is a bookworm, a gardener. She keeps a journal and
meditates (almost) daily. She is always on the lookout for flickers of
holiness and beauty. She identifies as a Spiritual Humanist.
