Worship Report (Sofia)

Here is the upcoming schedule for Thursday services through September of 2022. Note the color-coded blocks. Please double check the schedule for accuracy and availability. (The regular rotation is Zyzzy-Zoe-Sofia). I have adjusted the schedule to get around my summer vacation plans so each of you should do the same and communicate by group email if swaps are needed.

I have included the pagan holidays led by Zoe, Raven and Prosper in the rotation following requests as indicated in earlier minutes. If anyone would like to claim one of the open spots, let me know.

Saturday service – TED had to bail on Saturday Service a couple of weeks ago due to short notice picking up spouse from hospital. Good discussion most recent Saturday. TED is short on time, but value of SatSvc makes it worth trying to carry on.

New Business.

  • Anniversary Celebration next week – dance party at the Party Platform DJ’d by Raven
  • We discussed improvements to the Library: something to replace the Book Fountain, and also something that could be a repository of book reviews and recommendations.
  • We all send our best hopes for good health to TED’s spouse.
  • Pomona is recovering well and looks forward to leading services again soon; she’ll let us know when she’s ready. Absolutely no pressure. Honest.
  • Replacement of the old Biz canopy over the discussion area? Prosper can whip up something and we can look.
  • Prosper can also tweak non-Biz prims in the Sanctuary to resolve some problems with resolution.
  • Declining attendance?
  • Et reports that both our services are listed in the LL Events under Discussions.
  • Prosper could lead meditation weekly. Sofia suggests it would be good to try it out a couple of times and see if there’s interest. Zyzzy suggests that a Notice be sent out in the Unitarian Universalists of SL group.
  • Prosper reminds us of the Thanksgiving dinner– would it be possible to have a dinner on a semi-regular basis?
  • Prosper suggests starting a newsletter.
  • (Sofia) Should we as a congregation endorse the 8th principle? Sofia will take it as a topic in her series on the principles.

Next meeting May 26 at 5:30pm SLT at

Zyyzy’s place!

The meeting was adjourned at 6:09 pm SLT.
