SUNDAY AUGUST 7th POETRY SUNDAY – with Marsha Nagy
Some simple poems, maybe a classic or two, for our Universalist Unitarian Sacred Space August 7 11am Service will be lead by Marsha Nagy and interactive. There may be time to share your favorite poem too. (Please, no four page long epics.) Bring a poem along, in case the muse moves in that direction. We will “sit with” the artists and one another, outside if weather permits, inside (with nk95 or n95 masks) if not.
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 or to use the restroom when we have outdoor events.
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. Some choose to stay masked.
