Rev. Linda Anderson

Response Coordinator

Biography

She was ordained in 1992 and her dream of ministry involved serving the AIDS community in Brooklyn. Life had other plans though and she was called to serve the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Catskills in Kingston NY, where she remained for 18 years and was named Minister Emerita in 2010. She still had the dream of chaplaincy and trauma ministry so she served as a chaplain in Bridgeport Hospital and in the hospitals of Catholic Health Services of Long Island, where she also educated others in chaplaincy.  

Upon leaving Catholic Health Services, Linda served as a Community Minister in affiliation with the UU Fellowship at Stony Brook and led interfaith bereavement groups and Death Cafes throughout Long Island. She is often invited to present workshops on such topics as: Pastoral Care Team Training, Listening, Approaches to Conflict, Communication, Caring for the Dying and Those Who Love Them, Conversations on Wishes for the End of Life and more.

She has led Board and Congregational retreats for several Long Island congregations. Since 2018 she has served as the President of the Long Island Area Council. She is also on the Board of the Unitarian Universalist Trauma Response Ministry and for 2019-20 is the President of the Three Village Interfaith Clergy Association.
