Speaker: Rev. Harold Beu

UU Community Church member and retired Unitarian Universalist minister Rev. Harold Beu was a senior in high school when John F. Kennedy was assassinated. He participated in anti-war protests, including the March on Washington against the Vietnam War. He worked in a poverty-stricken neighborhood in Pittsburgh as part of ViSTA, the domestic version of the Peace Corps. He worked for a time as a high school teacher of history, civics, math, and psychology.

Harold went to graduate school in Berkeley and received his MDiv from Starr King School for the Ministry in Oakland. Ordained in 1982, he served Unitarian Universalist churches in California, Michigan, and Indiana before retiring a few years ago.

Harold actively works for Peace and Justice in our community as a member of Kalamazoo Non-Violent Opponent to War (KNOW) and can frequently be found at one of KNOW’s weekly vigils for Peace, Sunday at noon to 1:00 PM, in front of the Federal Building at the corner of Park and Michigan downtown Kalamazoo. Harold would like you to know that you are always welcome to join him at these vigils and reminds everyone to, “Keep hope alive!”
