Ministry at Lakehead Unitarian Fellowship

We at the Lakehead Unitarian Fellowship (LUF) believe in the celebration of a variety of religious and philosophical ideas from different cultures. We believe in the never ending search for truth and encourage individuals to develop their own personal theology.

Lakehead Unitarian Fellowship is a nurturing, caring community that embraces diversity; explores spiritual, religious, ecological and humanist values; and enriches the lives of members, friends and society at large.

Through a majority of its 50 year history, LUF has been lay-led. As a result, this has led to a strongly - developed sense of the importance of shared ministry.

Ministry is the act of serving. Shared ministry is what we do to serve our congregation and the broader community, individually and together. Each individual brings unique gifts to contribute. It sinks in that here one brings all of one’s self in the door on Sunday morning. It happens when newcomers as well as long time members bring questions like “what am I doing with my life” or “I wonder who else cares about world issues like I do”, and they discover that others are living those questions as well. It happens also when we recognize that each of us in our way supports and nurtures those close to us in community. It is Shared Ministry.

As we at LUF move forward after 50 years, we are getting closer to having on-going professional ministry as part of our community. This does not mean that shared ministry is less important. It means that we will involve the active participation of a trained professional to help us move along the path of shared ministry, working together to enhance our spiritual exploration, helping us ask the questions that lead on to further questions, encouraging us to be the best we can be.
