Minister's Message

 

Minister's Message

As we settle into the new routines of church life without in-person activities, I want to offer a couple of new options for connection.
 
First, I'll be in the PUUC Zoom "room" on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 for "Pastoral Chats with Rev. Diana." Drop in by computer or phone, hang out, and just talk. There's no set topic, no class I'm teaching, just a chance to check in with each other. (Note: these are group chats, not private pastoral counseling sessions, which you can also always request, either by phone or in Zoom.) I've scheduled them for the next three Tuesdays, and after that we'll assess whether they are meeting your needs. 
 
To join on a computer, tablet, or smartphone (video and audio):
 
Meeting ID: 896 856 607
 
To join by telephone (audio only):
 
1-646-558-8656
Meeting ID: 896 856 607
 
Second, as I mentioned in Virtual Coffee Hour after worship last week, you can also host virtual groups! Want a Zoom knitting group? A Zoom lunch bunch? A Zoom book club? Any group consistent with our values is welcome. Talk to me if you have an idea! (These groups will be volunteer-run, not staff-led.)
 
As a reminder, three congregants have volunteered to serve as "tech support" for people who need help with Zoom: Chris DiLoreto (jaymonaco@gmail.com), Anne Huberman (anne.huberman@gmail.com) and Joel Huberman (joel.huberman@gmail.com). Please reach out to them if you need support. (Thanks again, Chris, Anne, and Joel!)
 
In gratitude,
Rev. Diana
