The story of these innovative ministries is intended to inspire change in thinking and practice. This collection of essays invites readers to consider how liberal religion can address social issues through innovative community ministries beyond the walls of congregations. It provides historical and theological perspectives on community ministry and offers engaging real-life stories of community ministries in action. The authors have a long history of working in community ministry and they bring their experience, their inspiration, and their concerns, shared by them and their ministerial colleagues in the field to their accounts of this important story. There is no other book that tells the story of the challenges and potential of Unitarian Universalist Community Ministry for today and the future.

"I loved this book. I loved it for recording the struggle for recognition and support of healing and justice-making ministries that extend outward from the congregation. I loved it for the honest theological and institutional questions posed for our faith. But most, I loved it for the broad vision of our ministry that informs each page. How could a faith like ours hold a small vision when the call to help create a Beloved Community stirs in our hearts?"— Rev. Bill Sinkford, Past President, Unitarian Universalist Association
