Service Description:

“World’s Best Mom” – Rob Kinslow


There are several billion contenders for the title, but there is one “world’s greatest mom” we might all agree on: Gaia, Nature, Mother Earth. The World. This Mother’s Day, let’s celebrate not only the beauty but the wisdom of the earth, and how our mothers and mother figures come to symbolize the timeless urge to make things grow — including love.


Rob Kinslow is a Unitarian Universalist (UU) minister who has led worship in numerous UU congregations, both in-person as well as online during the COVID-19 pandemic. He is a graduate of Starr King School for the Ministry (master’s in divinity, 2020) and also attended Andover Newton Theological School. Having recently completed a chaplaincy at Boston Medical Center, Rob will be ordained into UU ministry on May 16, 2021. He is also the founder
of The Meaning of Magic, a nonprofit that teaches magic to young people. A proud father of two grown sons, Jay and Dan, Rob shares his home in Medford, Massachusetts with his beloved, Janice Zazinski, a UU church administrator and certified dog trainer. They are joined by their two rescued companions, Daisy (border collie mix) and Petey (American pit bull terrier).
