In Liminal Time:
Editing Team and Contributors

Michele Grove, Lily Rappaport, and Deborah Weiner serve as the editors for this online resource. All experienced religious educators, they have worked with a team of writers and creators to bring you both tools and reflections on transitional leadership. The editors wish to thank all the writers and interim religious educators who contributed to this project. ​​This project is a work in progress. The next phase of the project is a book ​on transitional religious leadership, which is anticipated to be published next year.


A heartfelt thanks for everyone who shared their time and talent in writing the many resources included on this website. This page gives you a glimpse into who these people are and how they contribute to the wider Unitarian Universalist community.
