Rev. Shawna Foster has had the privilege of being married to her spouse Tom Foster for over 12 years. They are proud parents of Rose and Rex – and Rev. Shawna often quips that “I don’t have two children, I have an astronaut and a paleontologist!” When they were selecting a faith home for their family, they chose Unitarian Universalism because “we knew what kind of spiritual life we wanted to have – we wanted our children to know all religious possibilities out there and to have the support to choose a spiritual or philosophical path that was meaningful to them.”
Professionally, Rev. Foster is a member of the Standing Commission of the Poor People’s Campaign with Rev. William Barber III, serves on the Open Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Association, a member of the Church of the Larger Fellowship, a regular attendee at the Aspen Institute, and a board member of Iraq Veterans Against the War.
A proud alum of Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago, Rev. Shawna Foster has seven years of ministerial training in Unitarian Universalist congregations, community ministry, and online ministry. In addition to ministry, Rev. Shawna loves kayaking, pottery, and the mountains we call home.

Director of Music

“Providing Music for the TRUU services is a creative and thoughtful exercise for me.    Each service is a unique weave of spoken word, music and song set around a theme.  The minister selects the hymns for all to sing, and supports me as I select the rest of the music from a diversity of musical genres (literally, from rock to Bach).   It’s really exciting for me when I can select and perform a song that seems to fit just right, such as when I play a postlude selection that is celebratory and light-hearted, but also pays respect to an important message of the day.” – Jimmy Byrne
