About the Author
Rev. Dr. Monica L Cummings
  • This collection is intended to foster the understanding of congregational leadership as an avenue for spiritual growth rather than an administrative chore. The ideal meditations would be both inspirational for and affirming of the work of all kinds of leaders—both professional and volunteer, lay and ordained. They would help support UU leaders through a kind of “literary ministry,” addressing issues common to many in leadership positions, and acknowledging some of the challenges as well. Overall, this collection will hold up the role of church leader as vital to healthy congregational life and honor those who serve in this capacity.
