Guest Speaker, Rev Summer Albayati, is a UU Muslim of Iraqi descent who has been playing the Arabic drum professionally since the age of 12. In serving congregations, her focus was on transformation by emphasizing that a mission-focused congregation increases vitality, membership, commitment to justice and love. Rev. Summer co-hosts a podcast with her son called “The Bayat Beat,” a commentary on society and culture, with an emphasis on social justice. She also has a chapter in the anthology, Centering: Navigating Race, Authenticity and Power in Ministry, published by Skinner House, and is currently working on a book regarding Islam, the Qur’an and Liberation Theology. Rev. Summer serves as Congregational Life Field Staff for the Unitarian Universalist Association, and is the primary contact for High Plains Church in the Pacific Western Region.
