roddy bell-shelton biggs uses they/them pronouns and is a Queer, BIPOC, UU Young Adult. They claim a  progressive anti-oppressive Christian faith grounded in the principles of Unitarian Universalism.

roddy holds a Bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies from Middle Tennessee State University and is a first-year seminary student at Meadville Lombard Theological School as they pursue the call to Unitarian Universalist ministry.

They have served as Mental Health and My Faith Conversation Coordinator for the UUA, Worship Lead for the UU Young Adult Revival Network, and on the Board of Directors for the UU Mental Health Network.

roddy joined us for a Thoughtful Thursday in October and we were so impressed we asked them to return. roddy shares “Beloveds, I do not have answers.  I’m healing, I’m growing; I’m learning to love myself, trying to find my place on this topsy-turvy journey that we call life.”
