I am affiliated with Quaker, where there aren’t any paid ministers. So, no, theoretically not. But the UCC I was at before would very much expect the minister to at least organize and think of all this. In these times, my hunch would be that they would be going back to expecting the minister to do even more “ since he/ she is now sitting idle”.Hmm, you asked ministers which is good if you are wondering how they are doing.
Then you listed a while bunch of items which are the role of council and congregation.
I'm curious if you were implying that all those items were the role of the minister?
I remember we once had a really bad snow storm shutting things down for a while. I made it to church, which of course was not happening, and I was worried about people living alone without power or needing someone to dig them out. I mentioned that to the people present - if there would be a plan/ way to ensure people are safe- there wasn’t. Since contact information was not available “ for confidentiality reasons”, I couldn’t really do anything myself.
