The August Sermon of the Month comes from Cameron Young, Congregational Life staff member for both the MidAmerica and Southern Regions. The title of their sermon is "Adaptive Ministry."

This year has been unprecedented for Unitarian Universalist Congregations, as many have sought ministers only to come up empty-handed. This shortage in ministers is not unique to UU or even religious organizations, but universal to all helping professions in the country. Why the shift? What does our shared theology say about how we, as beacons of liberal faith, must adapt to an era where change is constant?
