Membership is down to 34. I removed four avatars from the active member role as they had either left the group or not signed in after 1/1/2020. Those individuals are Taterbug Rossini, Beacon Questi, elseedyor and Morrigan.ethaniel.

The amount pledged so far for 2021 is L263,186. There are only 5 individuals I’m waiting to hear from, whose pledges last year amounted to L$42,560. I am following up with IMs.

UUtopia Report – Zyzzy

  • Tim, aka tmst01 got back in touch with me, unfortunately, right after I cleared his parcel and rented it to someone else. He wants to pay the back rent and come back.
  • Anara Heartsdale rented Tim’s former parcel at Alcott WSW.
  • Today is the 11th anniversary of UUtopia’s Founding!

Outreach – Et

  • From February: Et is going to the UUA General Assembly, and possibly Pomona. 6/24-27. (future GAs: June 22 – 26, 2022 in Portland, OR; June 21 – 25, 2023 in Pittsburgh, PA)
  • Should we publicize our RL zoom services during the announcement period? Perhaps invite it during the beginning of announcements and people there can add it to the chat? Et working on an object to give away a notecard.

Library Report – Pomona

  • The Religious Literacy Book Group is meeting Sunday afternoons at 3:30 pm SLT in the Library, where there is now installed a discussion ball and a nice sign about the group. This is led by Glanecia O’Riley (glanecia.varriale). The time was chosen by Glanecia and Too Easily Distracted. At the last meeting, only Glanecia and TED and I were present. Glanecia doesn’t want to be responsible for sending reminders of the meetings, but will allow me to do so. We are currently reading “Religious Literacy” by Stephen Prothero. We will begin discussing “The Left Hand of Darkness” by Ursula K. LeGuin on April 11th. I am not certain this is an optimal time on Sundays, but hopefully it will work. At any rate, I’m going to encourage it as much as possible.

Saturday Worship Report (from TED)

  • No one showed up last Saturday, I think because of Equinox parties. Aside from that, good conversations, and always at least a couple of people in the congregation. The alternating weeks of open topic discussion and written service works well for TED.

Worship Report (Sofia)

Here is the upcoming schedule for Thursday services through the end of May. Note the color-coded blocks. This is my way of ensuring that each one of the regular four presenters are in a regular rotation. Please check to be sure that it suits you. We can always make trades.
