…ministry

As I said in my introductory post I am a relatively new Unitarian Universalist. I came to the religion after we lost marriage equality in Maine. I went to a vigil. I came back because what was said that night meant so much to me.

Talking so people will listen, listening so people will talk, inspiring, encouraging, teaching, learning, moving forward, learning from the past. Ministry.

Effective ministry doesn’t mean you reach every single person. What’s the saying? “you aren’t a five dollar bill. not everyone is going to like you.”

What does effective ministry mean, then? It means that what you say encourages, teaches, is a leaning experience, a jumping off point to move forward to look back and remember and know and grow.

What are your thoughts on effective ministry?
