He is a recipient of a first place prize in the Unitarian Universalist Borden Sermon Awards, has served on the Borden Sermon Award jury, and for many years had been a member of the Billings Preaching Prize jury at the Harvard Divinity School. In 1986 Harvard University awarded him a Merrill Fellowship, after which he served there as both Denominational Counselor to Unitarian Universalist students and as a Visiting Lecturer for 22 years, which included teaching the course “Unitarian Universalist Polity and Practices.” In addition to his serving as a Unitarian Universalist minister for over 40 years, Reverend Lynn is also a registered architect. He is the author of the book Tired Dragons: Adapting Church Architecture to Changing Needs and has served as a lecturer and architectural consultant to over 70 Unitarian Universalist churches. His newest book, published in 2011, is Shore Lines: Life Lessons From The Sea, in which he creates a connection between the seaside environment and human experience through imagery and story.
