     October 4: "What Is Your Ministry? 

    Led by: Rev. Dr. Bruce T. Marshall

    Everyone can have a ministry. Not just those who are ordained, also lay people. Everyone can respond to the sense of “something more” to existence that may call us to service, to creativity, to a spiritual journey, to a mission. But not all ministries are the same. What is yours?

    During Second Hour, Rev. Marshall will meet with the congregation to discuss regional and national UUA responsibilities for ministerial search, and to answer any questions from the congregation. Please plan to attend this important conversation.

    Bruce Marshall is the Ministerial Settlement Representative for the southern section of the Joseph Priestley Unitarian Universalist District. He is retired from fulltime parish ministry, having served congregations in Michigan, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, and Maryland. Bruce is also a writer and is working on his fifth book, which is on the topic of meaning and spirit in aging.
