Who Are Clyde and Michelle?

TCMJH utilizes spiritualities grounded in relational wisdom and expressive arts to facilitate healing. Rev. Clyde Grubbs honors his Cherokee heritage and commitment to a just multiculturalism in his ministry, including his mentorship of seminarians and activist people of color.  Rev. Dr. Michelle Walsh is trained in Internal Family Systems practice as well as sandplay and is a committed Zen Buddhist practitioner in Thich Nhat Hanh's tradition. She is particularly committed to social service providers, clergy and lay healers seeking to sustain and ground themselves and develop vision and capacity for these troubling times.  

Our community ministry witnesses and advocates for transformative justice, especially as it relates to overcoming systemic oppression.  A portion of our ministry is dedicated to pro bono work and/or donations to community-based and led justice organizations.


Who Was Joseph Tuckerman?

Through our name, we honor Joseph Tuckerman (c. 1826), who was the first Unitarian community minister to work with impoverished immigrant communities and help his fellow religious liberals understand their role in the perpetuation of privilege.
