Transformation in Time: Moving Past Belief and Unbelief
Rev. Dr. Mark Belletini
Rev. Dr. Mark Belletini served the Rockford Church as both Intern and Summer Minister in the year 1977. He since has served three of our congregations, San Francisco and Hayward CA, and Columbus OH, the last two for 18 and 17 years respectively. He retired in 2015 and is now Minister Emeritus, living in Columbus and preaching at our various congregations. He has taught both practical and academic classes at both of our major seminaries, Starr King School, and at Meadville Lombard. He has served the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations by helping to chair our our credentialing body, the Ministerial Fellowship Committee, for 8 years.
For years he chaired the commission which produced the (now-aging) hymnbook Singing the Living Tradition. Skinner House published his two books, Sonata for Voice and Silence, and Nothing Gold Can Stay (a book on grieving) Mark was in the first generation of ministers who were clear about their gay sexual orientation when called and ordained in 1979. He has an adopted son, Tony, completing university up in Cleveland. He's been fortunate enough in life to have traveled, for which he is very grateful.
