November is Pastoral Care Month at UUMA Connect. Of all the duties of ministry, Pastoral Care may be the broadest. Our webinar this month will be on Friday, November 11th at 3PM Eastern Time. The Rev. Jake Morrill of the Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church. Jake will present on Family Systems Theory and its implication for pastoral care. Space will be limited so register in advance.

The Presidential election of 2016 has been disturbing and unsettling for many. If you have resources that may be helpful to your colleagues about the pastoral issues raised by the election, contribute them to Connect. Contact Tom Schade or Cindy Landrum for help. Expect a blogpost at Connect about Post-Election care from Tom Schade. Tom will also host a post-election drop-in session on Monday, November 14 at 4PM Eastern for anyone who wants to share their observations about the responses in their ministry setting to the election. Again, register here.
Chapters are welcome to 'adopt' a monthly theme by contacting the Connect leaders at firstname.lastname@example.org.
