Noting that in his retirement years he is "a guitar player, a budding
magician, and a Little League coach," the reverend Tom Owen-Towle has
previously authored over 20 books, several of which will be available for
purchase at the Assembly's bookstore.
Tom Owen-Towle and his life-partner, Carolyn, were co-ministers of First UU
Church of San Diego for 24 years. They are the active parents of 4 children
and grandparents of 6. The Rev. Owen-Towle was ordained in 1967 and has
served congregations in Germany, Iowa, Michigan and California, where he is
currently an interim minister in North San Diego County.
Rev. Owen-Towle will also bring the sermon at First UU Nashville's Sunday
morning worship the day after the assembly. Assembly attendees are
