Music, Brainstorming, and Soothing Words

Come join our Service this Sunday, November 27th, 11am by Zoom or in person wearing an N95 or KN95 mask.

Please join us this Sunday, November 27 at 11:00 for our service of music, brainstorming, and soothing words. We are grateful to Barb Harrison for volunteering to lead the service and for providing some music, and to Andy Ray for volunteering to grace us with his unique and thought-provoking percussion music.

Richard Thieret will be there, too, accepting donations for our upcoming December 4th 6:30pm-8:30pm auction to benefit both our congregation and United Campus Ministry Center (see additional information below.) New information: The auction will be available to bidders both on a nonprofit online charity auction service, with online bidding starting in a few days, and in person at the event. Stay tuned for more information in a special edition of the Greensheet this week.

MASK NOTES: Our board is still requiring KN95 or N95 masks (NO FABRIC MASKS, and no surgical masks, either) of folks entering the building for Sunday services. We have many folks who truly appreciate us flipping the “usual narrative.” Usually Zoom is for those who are at risk where in-person places are not safe for them. At the fellowship, we’re doing Zoom for anyone who doesn’t want to wear a nk95 or n95 mask thus keeping the fellowship safe for the most vulnerable. We do, however, allow our presenters to unmask when speaking in the front of the fellowship if they wish.

Those interested in a CUUPS group (Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans) had their first meeting on Sunday, November 20th. They plan to start simply, without officially joining as a CUUPs chapter. The BEST news:  They plan to offer us a Winter Solstice Service in a few weeks. Stay tuned for details!
