The annual pledge campaign has resulted in L$252,777 being pledged. We will most likely be dipping into our reserves at the end of the year as I estimate yearly expenses to require a L$300,000 pledged in order to break ever. Our reserves are robust and will carry us for many years, but we need more people pledging at the $100 (USA) rate. That’s roughly 25,000 Lindens

UUtopia Report – Zyzzy

  • Freda wants to take Orikosh’s former parcel.

Outreach – Et

  • Not much.
  • (GA June 20-23 (online only, some free-to-view items).)
  • Sofia will be attending (virtual) GA. Who else?

Library Report – ?

  • Et: Sermon library coming together. Continuing to collect services. 2020-23 collected; will figure out where to place things.
  • (Ideas: after getting them collected, possibly folding individual sermons into a folder/object, or pointer to a web page on fuuscl.org)

Saturday Service – TED

Saturdays alternating Open Topic with a subject homily works well. European participants, a few regulars. Good discussions and company, worth doing.

Continuing business

  • In our group email we’ve planned, written, and revised a letter to Linden Research about problems in Second Life. Letters sent to Linden Labs. Nothing heard back as yet.
  • Research other groups we may share this with
  • One route would be directly sharing with leaders of groups involved in education (ie Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education or VWBPE), or supportive services (Virtual Ability), major fundraising groups (RFL of SL which is currently presenting its annual Fantasy Faire), and of course other religious organizations (the Baha’i who share our region for example). Also reputable just-for-fun groups of long standing, like the Raglan Shire group that presents Tiny Caroling annually at UUtopia. Those groups can be asked to sign on to a revised version of the letter “from the undersigned groups,” or draft their own individual versions.

Another route would be to circulate a petition via one of those online petition-signing sites, to appeal directly to SL users.

ZOE will contact other groups and report back at May meeting
