Trusting you are taking precautions during this pandemic. Please follow the guidelines of the CDC and UUA who recommend social distancing.
Remember, you may be a carrier and not necessarily get this virus.
Let’s focus on self isolation and quit spreading this virus. It’s a proven fact that those areas that went into self isolation had less infections and a shorter outbreak time. So many just think it’s not going to get them so continue their daily lives when they’re actually making the situation worse. Do we want to stay home and away from our lives ? Of course not but we are looking at proven facts.
We are fortunate to live in this lovely climate and be able to go outdoors. Take a walk, have lunch outside with a friend or neighbor or read a book on the deck. We have much to be grateful for.
Cancelled at this time. Prior to the 10:30 am service, the Discussion Group meets at 9:15 a.m.
Cancelled at this time. After the service join us for "Coffee, Cookies and Conversation"
We will not be meeting in person as a congregation for the upcoming Sunday services. They will be live-streamed on YouTube each appropriate Sunday.

March 29, 10:30 am— Rev. Kathy Ricky, "Befriending our Fears" Live on the 29th Link
The sage Hafiz said, "Fear is the cheapest room in the house. I’d like to see you in better living conditions." In these days of uncertainty, it's easy to let our fears get the better of us. Let us make friends with our fears so that we may live a bit more easily

April 5— Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “What They Dreamed Be Ours to Do” Let's take a look back at the "Miracle on Halifax," a story of vision, determination, and sense of abundance which brought our beautiful building and grounds into being.
CANCELLATION OF EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE
April 12— Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “Easter in the Time of COVID 19” The month of April marks the holy days of the three Abrahamic Religions: Passover, Easter, and Ramadan yet we will most likely remain in isolation well into May or June. How will social distancing and the pandemic forever change our religious traditions?
April 19— “A Virtual Flower Communion: Words of Wisdom from our Congregation” Please e-mail Ellen Nielsen a “flower”—a 100-word or fewer description of something that has brought you comfort or inspiration during this difficult time. Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, April 15th and Ellen will create an anthology which will be read during the April 19th live-streamed service and available on our UU website. Another way to share our flowers!
April 26— Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “As the Spirit Moves” By this date, I anticipate significant changes in our social reality which has been turned upside down by the Corona pandemic. Let’s see how those changes have played out in our lived experiences.
Side with love
