UUAM (formerly known as UFETA, which remains the official
name for business purposes) often runs ads in UU World,
and we hope to run more ads, ads with varied messages that will challenge all Unitarian
Universalists to rethink how animals are treated in our society (click here for samples.).
Your donation will be used for this purpose only.
"We acknowledge and affirm the kinship and interdependence of all beings, and
adopt an ethic of interspecies compassion as an integral component of liberal
religion." - UUAM
Reverence for Life: Transforming Belief into Practice through Animal Ministry
This class is specifically designed for Unitarian Universalists interested in beginning, supporting, or growing animal ministries in their congregations. During this one session webinar we will reflect upon Albert Schweitzer's ethic of Reverence for Life and what it could mean for our lives, organizations, and congregations. We will outline resources and possible next steps to set up an animal ministry within your congregation, with specific consideration for Unitarian Universalist congregations. Part of this ministry might include joining the Reverence for Life Program designed by UUAM, which is explained. Those wishing to take the multiple session course, "Connecting Our Hearts to All Life" are required to take this class first.
Individuals may participate in this class, though we strongly suggest that groups of individuals take the class together. This allows for greater learning of the material, as well as building relationships and understanding which creates stronger ministries within congregations. We ask that you contact Rev. Joyner if you plan to take this course so she can support your process, as well as when you have completed this class.
