Three Hundred Years of Community Ministry in Unitarian Universalism
by Kathleen R. Parker
This unique contribution to the Unitarian Universalist history chronicles the remarkable work of lay and ordained UU ministers in areas of social justice, chaplaincy, authorship and the arts, and educational and institutional leadership. This is ministry beyond the churches – it is community ministry.
If you are a community minister, these stories will inspire and enliven your awareness of the heritage on which you stand. If you are a Unitarian Universalist in either lay or ordained capacity, this work may deepen your understanding of what that means. If you are someone with an interest in liberal religion, this history will help you better appreciate the liberal religious imperatives towards service and human connection, demonstrated in American Unitarian Universalism from the colonial era to the present.
