In a buoyant celebration on April 13, the Unitarian Universalists of Transylvania County (UUTC) installed and welcomed its new pastor, the Rev. Ilene Kaur Tompkins-Gillispie. UU clergy from both the region and out of state, as well as local clergy, participated in the service. Rev. Ilene's mother, a graphic artist, designed the programs.

Rev. Ilene is the only child of Lisa and Mike Gillispie. Her Jewish mother and Christian father were introduced to Unitarian Universalism when the parents of a pre-school classmate invited the Gillispies to their UU church on "Bring a Friend" Sunday.
