Get the Book: DEVYING THE NAZIS: THE SHARPS’ WAR Books available at discounted price of only $23.50. Contact Anne Thorward. A great read published by UUA Beacon Press. Great gift and some say the book is much better than the movie.
Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War is an account of a daring rescue mission that occurred on the precipice of World War II. It tells the previously untold story of Waitstill and Martha Sharp, an American minister and his wife from Wellesley, Massachusetts, who left their children behind in the care of their parish and boldly committed to a life-threatening mission in Europe. Over two dangerous years they helped to save scores of imperiled Jews and refugees fleeing Nazi occupation across Europe.

Welcome to CA, Rev. Susan Manker-Seale.
Rev. Susan was born in Riverside, then spent most of her life in AZ. Her biography is impressive. A graduate of Starr King School for the Ministry, Susan sings, she writes books, poems and music, is a social justice advocate, speaks Spanish, is a published author and much more.
Susan has served as parish minister in a few different congregations for nearly twenty-five years. We welcome her as our Interim minister for the next two years; preparing MVUUC for the process of finding a settled minister at the end of her two-year interim.
Susan has a lot of extra special experience as she learned about Unitarian Universalism from birth. Susan’s dad is now a retired UU minister.
Again, please welcome Susan when you see her at church.
