Remember when holy week used to be a week filled with spiritual practice, introspection, and a respite for the soul? For most ministers, holy week is not all that "holy". Many are running multiple services in the week and serving more members than they do all year. Some are already dreading the exhausting amount of work ahead of them.
In honor of the original spirit of holy week, we at the UUMA are launching a new offering on UUMA Connect. Starting March 31, in the midst of Holy Week, we began posting Ministry Meditations. We will post these meditations on the UUMA Connect blog every Tuesday and Thursday, making routine the importance of spiritual nurturing for ministers. These meditations will be made by ministers for ministers -- a series of reflections, meditations, prayers, and introspective moments, calling us back to our spiritual core.
Below is the first in what promises to be a rich series, dedicated to nurturing your ministry:
Where the Desert Meets the Sea
Call For Submissions:
For this project to continue serving our colleagues far into the future, we need submissions! If you would like to submit a video meditation you have two options. You can create your own video, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also schedule a Zoom meeting with our staff, where we will record your meditative words and presence for our members. Visit this Connect page for more information on submissions.
Our colleagues are hungry for soul food of their own- let us serve each other. Come to UUMA Connect and see what we are cooking up together!
