Greetings to you all,
Just a reminder that we are now meeting on a Sunday morning at 10.30-11.40am in the church and live-streamed on Zoom with a time of conversation following. To get the Zoom link please email me (contact details below).
Full details of the new service can be found at the following link:
A reminder that there is now the opportunity for members of the congregation to offer a short, 5 minute reading or “thought for the day” (that’s round about 500 words) following the end of the service and before the time of conversation. Please be in touch with me if you’d like to do this and we can set a date and, should you wish, have a natter about how to go about it. Rosemary kindly gave the first of these last week and you can find her words, and a few other examples, on our new SLACK site under the “the-five-minute-thought-for-the-day-thread”.
To join the SLACK site please email me (contact details below).
Thank you to those who attended the very enjoyable and fruitful Evening Conversation on Wednesday 6th October. The next one will take place on 20th October (7.15 for 7.30pm until 9.00pm) and I will send the Zoom link out for that next week. To help frame our current conversations we are looking at Richard Trudeau’s very short and succinct book “Universalism 101: An Introduction for Leaders of Unitarian Universalist Congregations”. As the sub-title reveals, Richard wrote it particularly for the North American situation but the general points he makes speak relevantly to us here in the UK. In the conversation itself, I will in any case be able to introduce you to the British and European elements of the story that don’t get explored by Trudeau.
This book is available for Kindle at only £2.69 <https://www.amazon.co.uk/Universalism-101-Introduction-Universalist-Congregations-ebook/dp/B01IK9DX7Y/ref=tmm_kin_title_sr?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=> and new physical copies can also be bought via the same link. Alas, second-hand copies seem only to be available from the USA. Anyway, I’d strongly encourage people to get their own copy but in the event you cannot obtain one before the 6th October conversation please be in touch with me directly so I can give you temporary access to the text.
For those interested in reading my blog and/or listening to the associated podcast please follow the links below my signature here.
Lastly please remember that if you would like to speak with me during the week simply be in touch and we can arrange a suitable time to talk properly either by telephone, Zoom or on a socially distanced one-to-one walk/talk.
With love and best wishes as always,
