Rev. Marti Keller

Rev. Marti Keller is the consulting minister for the Auburn Alabama UU Fellowship, the affiliated minister with the Unitarian Universalist Women's Federation, and an independent consultant on congregational ministry. She has been both a parish and community minister, serving congregations in the Mid-South since 1998. She has been a guest speaker in many pulpits, including Dublin, Ireland, and San Miguel De Allende, Mexico.

Rev. Keller is endorsed by the Humanist Society as a Humanist Celebrant. Endorsed Humanist Celebrants are the clergy of the Humanist Society (American Humanist Association) and are authorized to both act as legal officiants at weddings and to conduct memorials and perform other ceremonial functions.

She is also a published poet with Thinking in Haiku (CreateSpace, 2017, available from Amazon.com) and chapbooks: Prickly Pear (Farm House Press, 2009) and South/West (Shakespeare's Sisters Press, 2013). She is the co-editor, with Leah Hart-Landsberg, of Jewish Voices in Unitarian Universalism (Skinner House, 2014). She is also an author and editor of Faith of UU Jews, part of the welcoming pamphlet library of the Unitarian Universalist Association.

Rev. Marti Keller is available to perform weddings. For those who are interested in the kind of services that reflect their own spirituality and religious beliefs, who want to avoid patriarchal and sexist words and symbols, who want to celebrate rather than solemnize their commitment, Unitarian Universalist services are ideal.

Rev. Keller’s Latest Poetry Book Now Available

Thinking in Haiku (CreateSpace, 2017) uses the structure and form of haiku to capture both the natural world and contemporary everyday events: scooping coffee, visiting the eye doctor, hanging curtains in a gentrifying apartment. Rev. Keller has come to "think in haiku," viewing and commenting on the world around her in a stripped down syntax, translated into this poetic genre — in what has become a powerful spiritual practice.

A Haiku for October

You cannot distract me
with your red faced sneering rage
I’ve pans to season
