Sam’s wisdom and compassionate heart are matched by his sharp, inquisitive mind, both demonstrated by years of effective leadership in ministry and in secular organizational settings. He has the respect and affection of a broad swath of Unitarian Universalists because he upholds respect and affection for each person he meets.

I met Sam in the fall of 1986 as we began our seminary education together at Starr King School for the Ministry.  I appreciated Sam’s cheerful, curious intellect; his friendly, honest demeanor;  his integration of mind, body and spirit; and his openness to new insights, experiences and learnings.  I have observed his path of successful long-term ministry over the past 35 years, and I have the utmost respect, affection and admiration for him.  I admire his integrity, his leadership, his many roles in service to others, and his many, many skills and gifts.  I am so grateful to him for being willing to take on this crucial role in our Association, we are truly fortunate.

UU Minister / Candidate;UU Religious Education Professional

When my wife and I decided to move to the northeast, I applied for and was offered Director of Religious Education positions in two congregations. Rev. Sam Trumbore was minister at one of those congregations. While I ultimately chose the other congregation for a variety of factors over which Rev. Sam would not have had control, it was an incredibly tough decision. During the search process I developed a deep respect for Rev. Sam. Among other qualities, he is very thoughtful. Throughout our interactions, he demonstrated a curiosity and interest in the perspectives of others, and a desire to learn from his experiences with others. (Not to mention Rev. Sam’s deep commitment to religious education.) Over the years, I have loosely followed Rev. Sam’s work from a distance. Throughout, he has held a commitment to liberation (anti-racism/anti-oppression). I was not surprised to learn he is now running against a candidate who has scoffed at anti-racism/anti-oppression work and rejected accountability practices for my colleagues. I do not hesitate in the slightest in offering my endorsement of Rev. Sam.

UU Minister / Candidate;UU Religious Education Professional;Current / Former UUA Committee Member;Current / Former Congregational Leader;UU Congregational Member

I have known Sam as a dedicated Unitarian Universalist for decades, expressing that dedication through his service to our professional ministry.  I have experienced Sam as a reasoned yet passionate voice in discussions about the nature and future of our movement, always with a view to clarifying issues more than proving points.

His long tenure in his present pastorate tells me that he knows how to stay the course even while steering into challenging waters.  On a personal note, one of my brothers was a member of the congregation in Albany when he worked in that area.  Now, many years later and a move to a different community far away, he says when he returns to the Albany congregation periodically it feels like “going home.”  That speaks well of Sam’s ability to engender in people a welcoming spirit.

I would feel our Association would in wonderful care with Sam on our Board.

For many years he served as a board member and strongly supported Interfaith Impact of NYS, which for a quarter of a century acted as the UU State Advocacy Network for New York. I believe he will be the kind of board member that the UUA needs during this time of change, and he has my strongest possible endorsement.

Sam Trumbore has been my minister and my friend for the past 12 years.  My daughter and I are two of the few Black people in the congregation, and our membership and full participation has sometimes been difficult.  With empathy and compassion, Sam has provided pastoral care when I needed it.  He has helped me cope with my diagnoses for prostate cancer and for Parkinson’s Disease, and his counsel has given me comfort through my divorce.  More impressive than his personal assistance has been his ongoing commitment to inclusion, social justice and ending structural racism in our congregation and the community at large.  He has facilitated or participated in the many diversity workshops in our congregation, most recently the Racial Healing Workshop, by Anneliese Singh.  He does what he does because this work aligns with the principles of our denomination.  He does it because it is the right thing to do.  I know this because I asked him about it during one of the many lunches we have shared over the years.  As I said, he is my friend as well as my minister.  And I endorse him without reservation for the UUA Board.

White male Unitarian Universalists like me have a special responsibility to resist the backlash against becoming an inclusive association that respects and welcomes people of color, LGTBQ+, and others who have been excluded.  The backlash takes many forms and hides itself behind pretty words, but the words all say:  those who have been excluded must accept our terms to be included.  Sam Trumbore, a fine minister who will serve us well on the board, faces a backlash candidate and that candidate must be defeated.
