Summer Meditation Services and UU Road Trip

Summer Meditation

Continuing our tradition of over 12 years, we will have meetings for silent and spoken meditation this summer.  They will be held on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. on Zoom, beginning on June 14th and continuing through September 6th, except for June 28, July 26, and August 16, when Rev. Joan will be leading Summer Services.  We plan to provide a short reading, to ponder as attendees wish.  We will begin with a brief greeting.

After 45 minutes, whether the meeting has been silent until then or not, conversation about the reading – or other interests – will be welcome.  If you know others who’ve attended in recent years, who may not receive Weekly Announcements, please let them know.  For questions, please contact Pat Carstensen; 223-2233; oaktreedance@hotmail.com  or   Peter Thoms; 223-2648;  peter.thoms1@gmail.com.  We look forward to seeing you — please follow this link to register: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJcode6oqT0qHtHdfG695p–GSVZVCSyhKxN. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

UU Road Trip 2020 

Craving worship over the summer?  Join us for an East to West virtual road trip!

Each week in the e-news, we’ll post a link for worship at the church we’re “visiting.”  It will be a recently recorded service, not “live” on Zoom.  You may watch it at 10am if you wish to keep to a worship routine, or any other time that suits you.  A “UU Road Trip Coffee Hour” will follow (on Zoom) at 11:00 a.m. each Sunday, so that we can share our impressions of the churches we visit and catch up with each other.

Our UU Road Trip Dashboard will be updated weekly with a little history of the congregation we visit and maybe a local recipe or other bits of local lore, to add to the whimsy of travel while most of us are pretty homebound.  UCM will be giving a donation to each church in gratitude for sharing their ministry with us.

UU Road Trip Coffee Hour at 11AM

Whether you watch that week’s worship service at 10am on Sunday, or Friday late at night, we hope you’ll join us to reflect and connect with others in a UCM Coffee Hour.  Think of it as getting back on the bus after our “visit.”  What inspired you?  Challenged you?  Made you curious to find out more?  Lift up your takeaways with one another, while enjoying a chance to see new and familiar faces from our UCM community.
