  • Nothing new
  • Zyzzy finally put something on his land!

Outreach – Et (on the road to North Dakota)

Library Report – Pomona

  • Renovations have been made to the fountain and exterior of library by Bel. Pomona thinks it needs something nicer and softer there.
  • Zoe and Pomona will work on making the area nicer
  • L$17,000 available for purchasing items for library.
  • Bookclub: Pomona does not have any suggestions for a bookclub at this time. Our experience with a club led by an outside person was not very successful. Not many people attended.

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.

Sofia notes that we have one new member, Prosper.

Note also that Sofia’s vision may prohibit her acting as Treasurer in future and she asks that others may consider taking on that responsibility. Sofia can get through the next year and help someone else take over the job.

We all express our sympathy for Sofia with this life-changing medical condition.

UUtopia Report – Zyzzy

  • Sofia asked about the lighthouse abandoned by Thisbe Blackadder when she discontinued renting in the NW (which plot?). It has remained in place because it looks good there and can stay there until someone else rents the plot and wants it removed.
  • 12th Anniversary of UUtopia is tomorrow, March 25th. Let’s plan to hold another anniversary party for the 15th anniversary, as we did 2 years ago for the 10th.

Outreach – Et not present

  • No news

Library Report – Pomona

  • (from February, not included in regular minutes)
  • Any improvements you want to do to the library is all okay with me. I haven’t had time to do anything there recently. LuvWorldReligions has all the money the LG gave plus whatever donations have come in. All those assets are assets of FUUCSL. I made the avatar but consider it property of FUUCSL. Who ever is running the library can use that avatar and build the inventory etc. Then when they leave the next person has everything they need to continue. It was my way of ensuring it kept going . I love the library and just want it to keep going. It is a blessing to many.
  • There are still things that belong to me there but you can send them back to me anytime. I had been trying to replace those items over time so everything there was from Luv and an asset of FUUCSL. Just know the girls that use the discussion area got very upset when I removed it and the cat LOL. They donate regularly so I try to keep them happy.
  • Oh, also if the media is turned on there should be a video about UU—–Turns out the TV is broken (sigh) I’m trying to find something else to put above the fireplace
  • (2) LuvWorldRelligions , the Librarian Avatar, has $L 17,903 gathered from various donation boxes in the Library.
  • (3) I (as LuvWorldReligions) made the Unitarian Universalism sign and the four “books” shown in that area LARGER. These are all in one of the “discussion areas” in the Library. The “books” are full of notecards (rather than links) with information about UU and UUtopia and FUUCSL. The text of these notecards follows below*. PLEASE let me know if you would like to suggest edits or additions.

*The text of the notecards was enclosed in Pomona’s email to the LG on March 14 which failed to reach all members; those who did not receive it can see the notecards by going to the library and clicking on the books.

Prosper suggests that there’s a way of publishing tablets in SL that opens text in a window you can read without it blocking the SL screen. He can also make a poster that would open notecards or these tablets.

Saturday service – TED was not here for a report.

New Business.

  • 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?
  • Additional events could attract more attendance, as could listing them in the SL events schedule. Sofia did a web search to find out how to list events there and says it’s easy.
  • 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– ould it be possible to have a dinner on a semi-regular basis?
  • Bel asks if we could have a monthly dance event. Liliana would be happy to DJ. Zoe could set up the party platform for a dance party April 28 after the Beltane service.

Liliana who will lead that service agrees that would be appropriate. Party platform is at

Saturday service – attendance low recently, but some really good discussions. The alternating OpenTopic / homily pattern is working well to keep TED from burning out.

New Business.

  • Prosper has ideas for remodeling, reducing prim load in the Sanctuary. Discussion on reducing prim counts, redesign of sanctuary (review of potential future look). Concern that many objects in the sanctuary are not owned by current members.
  • Zoe wants to know if we can shop for some newer, smoother dances for the Sanctuary. (Of course!) We talked about linking tempo of songs and dances. TED will send a draft partial list to Zyzzy.
  • Zoe also wonders if we should restart the sim periodically to reduce lag. If you’ve noticed that sometimes when you’re trying to walk to the sanctuary, your avatar just takes off and goes and goes, that’s something that can be controlled by restarting the sim maybe weekly or so at a time when not a lot of people tend to be present. Zyzzy will restart the sim periodically and we will see what happens.
  • After the meeting adjourns, and before tonight’s service, Zoe needs four or more volunteers to test the seating system in the pagan circle.

Next meeting February 24 at 5:30pm SLT at mini sanctuary pavillion (“meeting circle”)

UUtopia Report – Zyzzy

  • Holly switched her parcel to the 1024 in UUtopia NW, formerly rented by Zena. I had been keeping it for her, but it’s been a long time since she’s checked in, so I think she’s gone.
  • Amorhumanity/Vitae is moving on. I don’t know what this means for the proposal to re-do the Library.
  • UUtopia East is now fairly bare. Feel free to decorate it. Zoe volunteers to put in a lovely park. 🙂

UUtopia Report – Zyzzy

  • Asgoodson has left their parcel
  • Decoration of unowned parcels has started!
  • I checked out the auto-playing video in the Library, but it refused to play for me. I didn’t see any reason why that was. In any case, it appears to be set to play for anyone with “autoplay” enabled in their preferences. I’m not sure that’s a bad thing.

Outreach – Et

  • No action.

Library Report – Pomona

  • Religious Literacy book group now on hold since Glenacia (the leader) has a new job and wants to wait until sometime in September to see if she can continue as leader. There may be a new day and time set. These discussions should be added to the SL Events calendar. Et explained how to add Events to the SL Calendar.
  • Saturday Worship Report (from TED) We’ve been having good discussions on Saturday. Group size varies, from just one to the better part of 10. About half non-overlap with Thursdays. People from Europe. TED will be away Aug 14 and 21 (out 8/9 – 27). Thank you Zyzzy for fixing the jukebox, especially on short notice. Zoe will take 8/14. Pomona will at present take responsibility for putting Saturday services on the Events Calendar; TED wants to learn how to do this also.

  • TED giving a homily about Motivations at the Camp Hill UU congregation’s “Eventide” zoom meeting Thursday September 2nd 4 pm SLT. Prosper says the more the merrier. We should announce it to the UUs of SL group – Aug 26th, Zyzzy? (Ask TED or Prosper for link)
  • GUEST SPEAKERS PROGRAM: Pomona discussed soliciting our friends to contribute homilies and/or other ideas for services. The avatar “UU Guest Speaker” is a new avatar that Pomona will use to present guest services. If anyone has ideas let us know. “Universalist Recovery Church” has a good blog “Barbara’s Column”; Rev. Barbara Stevens gave Pomona permission to use one of her blogs for a homily on July 22. Jessica Sand of the Vancouver WA congregation provided the homily for the August 19th service, and Jessica even attended the service herself.

UUtopia Report – Zyzzy

  • Zena Silverstar has disappeared. No idea why. I’m leaving her parcel alone for now.
  • Del moved from UUtopia ENE to UUtopia NNE1, next to TED and Zoe.
  • Orikosh hasn’t been heard from in almost two months.
  • We currently have 7 available parcels, 3 on Alcott and 4 on UUtopia.
  • With this many empty parcels, I think it would be nice if some people decorated them. Perhaps leave a tasteful “this parcel is available” sign somewhere on them.
  • Discussion:
    • We should invite others to decorate un-rented parcels.
    • Clean out the “UUtopian” group after announcing the cleanout
    • Send a group message to UUtopians inviting others to decorate.
    • We will provide a sign that says “Parcel available for rental touch sign for information” and it will send you a notecard with rental information (someone should generate the object/notecard and distribute to UUtopians)
    • Please make decoration objects group-owned to UUtopians to allow other UUtopians to adjust.

Outreach – Et

  • No action. UUA GA next year in Portland; maybe we can meet (plan your vacation for 2022!)

Library Report – Pomona

  • Now discussing “The Dalai Lama’s Cat”. Low attendance but TED and Pomona have continued. Time moved to Thurs 14:30 SLT. 4 of us were there today for the first session on this book.
