The Rev. William L. Clark will be installed as the called minister of the Vineyard’s Unitarian Universalist congregation on Sunday, May 22. The celebration will be held at Steven’s Chapel at 238 Main Street, Vineyard Haven, at 4 p.m., and will be followed by a reception. All are welcome.

Known to the congregation as Rev Bill, several years ago he was engaged as a consulting minister to help the congregation chart a course for its future. A mutually supportive relationship developed and it was decided to make the relationship permanent.

A quote from the Reverend Peter Fleck, a mentor, has been chosen as the theme for the installation: “Grace is a blessing, a blessing that is undeserved, unsolicited and unexpected, a blessing that brings a sense of the divine order of things into our lives. The ways of grace are mysterious. We cannot always figure them out. But we know grace by its fruits, by the blessings of its works.”

The service will include music and speakers. The offering will be given to given to the Island clergy homeless emergency fund that supports Hospitality Homes Serving Martha’s Vineyard, and to the Living Tradition Fund, which provides financial assistance to retired UU ministers.
