“Virtual” Service to Reconnect Amidst Tragedy


In what might be a first-ever for CVUUF, we will hold tomorrow’s service “virtually”.

We will however be gathering on Zoom (an internet group platform) from 10 – 11:30. You can join us by phone or live on camera. We will light a chalice, share stories, hear uplifting readings, sing together, mourn the tragedies of these past few days and be in community even when we are physically apart. You can join us at any time during that window, or be with us for the whole time. And if you have CVUUF neighbors nearby, you may want to invite them over so you can have some fellowship, while we’re on the Zoom call together. If you know people who do not have internet, please let them know the phone number they can call tomorrow.

Here is the access information for zoom:

The Song We Were Singing

Experience and science have shown how powerful music can be in evoking in us memories. Sometimes. these memories are near the surface of our recall ability, others are deeply buried. Do we as people share the same memories of the same songs? What happens when we don’t?


Honoring Our Ancestors

Day of the Dead and All Soul’s Day is a time to honor our ancestors, celebrating them through stories and song. Visiting guest author, Amada Perez, will be sharing stories about her life and ancestry ( www.amadairmaperez.com ). Reverend Nica and Sam Dickerson will lead this intergenerational service. We invite you to bring photos of your relatives and friends who are no longer with us, both from this community and your families to place on our community altar of remembrance. Let us pull from their love and strength so that we may heal what troubles us, and move toward a more joyous future for all generations.
