As we approach Halloween, the UUMA wants to give our members a little treat! In honor of Clergy Appreciation Month in October, we want to give you our Nurturing Excellence in Ministry Kit. Many of you might have picked one up at our booth last Ministry Days. This kit is intended for a congregant or lay member to know better ways of supporting ministry across the spectrum of professional roles and types of ministry. It gives tips on how to support professional staff and respect time off, as well as what a healthy congregation does to promote its ministry to the world. Please follow this link to access electronic copies of these resources. We encourage all of you to give these to board members, church leaders, or just to have them out at your congregation. The better equipped UUs everywhere are at nurturing ministry, the more powerful and healthy our UU faith will be.
Many of our members have practiced civil disobedience in the last few years in protest of immigration, black lives matter and peaceful protest. In the hope that nobody accidentally ends up in jail on Halloween we wanted to make you aware of some laws regarding your possible family Halloween rituals - click here!
Happy Halloween from the UUMA.
Your ministry is a treat we are deeply thankful for.
