Our Minister

Rev. Dr. Kharma R. Amos has served as the Minister of the Unitarian Universalists of Central Delaware (UUCD) since September of 2019.  Kharma was ordained in 2002 by MCC (Metropolitan Community Churches) and has Plural Standing (preliminary fellowship) with the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). She has served for nearly 20 years in ordained leadership in MCC, where she is still a current member of the denominational senior leadership team.

Kharma has a personal, familial history of interfaith (including Baptist, Baha’i, Spiritual Humanist, and Atheist) understandings of spirituality/life. Her “first language” of faith is Christian, and she still finds meaning in progressive/resistant explorations of Jewish/Christian scriptures and traditions. She also embraces the “multi-lingual” nature of spirituality and has studied and practiced learning more about other expressions of faith that expand our capacity to know, understand, and be shaped by the mystery of life, which is bigger than all of us. Most important to her is that we work together to respect all people, learn from one another, and make the world a better and more just place for all.

Rev. Dr. Amos received her B.A. in Religious Studies from the University of Oregon in Eugene, her M. Div. from Lancaster Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania, and her D. Min. from Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She has written and published on topics of Queer Theology and Practical Activism.  Kharma lives in Rehoboth Beach with her wife, Rev. Elder Diane Fisher – a proud Canadian and the current pastor of MCC Rehoboth – and their menagerie of pets (Kady, Téa, Tobert, and Annie).  She loves to sing and laugh (among other things) and tries to bring all of this to bear on her work with us at UUCD.
