Congregational Stories About Sharing Ministry
Ministry is no longer an act provided only by those who are ordained or called to serve. Ministry happens wherever individuals embrace the belief that their good works, their volunteerism, their acts, can help serve the mission and vision of their congregation.
Where formerly people may have thought of themselves as 'just a volunteer' or one of a nameless group of people performing a task, now, more and more, members of Unitarian Universalist congregations understand that ministry is something shared by all who are part of a spiritual community; a way to put faith into action for the benefit of the church and the wider community.
These stories of congregational life share the ways in which members of Unitarian Universalist churches have ministered to one another and discovered new ways of serving and being served.
