“Friends are like good medicine” it has been said.  Many of us have leaned on our friends to help us get through rough times, like the pandemic we have all been facing.  Rev Joy will explore the human phenomenon of friendship, what constitutes a friend, and the role friendship plays in our lives.

Rev. Joy Atkinson retired from parish ministry in 2018, after 25 years as a settled minister and 16 years as an interim minister. She served UU Marin as interim minister from 2003 to 2004 and again from 2016 to 2018. She was also a ministerial intern at UU Marin in 1971 while attending Starr King School Seminary in Berkeley. Since retiring, she has enjoyed traveling, singing with the Oakland Symphony Chorus and the Contra Costa Chorale and spending time with her grandchildren in Oregon, until the pandemic temporarily cut these activities short. She has continued pursuing other interests including reading, writing, amateur astronomy and involvement in UU organizations.
