“On Being a Teaching Congregation”

Rev. Patricia Hart & Rowan Van Ness

On this Sunday, marking the end of Rowan Van Ness’ ministerial internship year, both Rowan and Rev. Tricia will reflect on what it means when a congregation takes on the important work of helping a ministerial candidate learn about that role in our UU tradition. People training for the ministry are often referred to as being in “formation.” What about the rest of us?

We hope many of you will join the service – either in-person (outside the Meeting House) or by tuning in to the audio livestream. Find the link to the service at uusociety.org/worship-and-music/live-streamed-sunday-worship or on our YouTube channel.

There will be chairs, but feel free to bring your own portable chair, or a blanket if you’d like to sit on the ground. Choose distancing that makes you comfortable and wear a mask if you prefer. If entering the Meeting House, masks are strongly encouraged indoors.

Childcare will be available in the Memorial Garden during the service. After the service, all are welcome to Outdoor Coffee Hour at 11 a.m., and Zoom Coffee Hour at 11:15 a.m. The Zoom link and more information can be found here: Online Coffee Hour

Outdoor Sunday worship services will continue through September 4.
