Led by the Reverend Dr. Linda Anderson. The Reverend Dr. Linda Anderson was ordained in 1992 and her dream of ministry involved serving the AIDS community in Brooklyn. Life had other plans though and she was called to serve the UU Congregation of the Catskills in Kingston NY, where she remained for 18 years and was named Minister Emerita. She still had the dream of chaplaincy and trauma ministry and in 2010 the timing was right. She has served as a chaplain in Bridgeport Hospital and in the hospitals of Catholic Health Services of LI, where she also educated others in chaplaincy. Linda is a Community Minister in affiliation with the UU Fellowship at Stony Brook and for the past four years Linda has led interfaith bereavement groups and Death Cafes throughout Long Island. She is often invited to present workshops on such topics as: Pastoral Care Team Training, Listening, Approaches to Conflict, Communication, Caring for the Dying and Those Who Love Them, Conversations on Wishes for the End of Life and more. She has led Board and Congregational retreats for several LI congregations. This year she is serving as the President of the Long Island Area Council. She is also on the Board of the UU Trauma Response Ministry.
