Oct 8: Growing up UU as a PK, by Bill Parke
There are comparatively few UUs in the world. Even fewer grew up UU. Even less had a UU minister as a parent, oftentimes called a PK or “preacher’s kid.” And it is a rare thing indeed to have a UU PK whose minister-parent grew up in this church, but here we are, with that as the experience of very our own member, Bill Parke. On October 8th we’ll learn from Bill what it was like growing up as the offspring of The Rev. Dr. David B. Parke — a product of UUCB and a UU minister of 17 UU congregations over a period of 50 years. It’s a story that ranges from hard times to happy, and has something to offer for everyone.
