There is “Power in Small Congregations” and our guest, Rev Phil Lund will share this perspective with the Blue Hills Unitarian-Universalists at our 10 a.m. service, Sunday, September 13th.
In recent discussions, our fellowship has affirmed the esteem and satisfaction we find in our small fellowship, which Rev Lund describes as “Intimate, Nimble, Authentic, and Effective.” Lund expands his observance: “We’ve learned ways the COVID-19 pandemic has forced congregations of all sizes to find new ways of doing church. While larger congregations may seem to have more resources to make the changes needed to adapt, smaller congregations have their own strengths. We’ll explore the traits that make small congregations particularly well-suited to thrive in these trying times.”
The BHUU Board members will meet after the service concludes; all are invited.
We begin at 10:00 a.m. The Zoom link will be sent to members by Saturday, although all interested are invited to sign in. Visitors may contact Ken Hood > firstname.lastname@example.org for the link needed to join the service.
Those lacking cyberlink connection or equipment to enable participation and want to join in, are invited to meet IN the church, masked and distanced ~!~ to watch the presentation on large screen ZOOM.
Several group discussions regarding Racial Justice will take place September 9 at 10 a.m., and on the 14, 21, and 30th, at 6:30 p.m. Based on the book “White Fragility”, April Neilsen will serve as facilitator, encouraging all who are interested to take part whether the book has been read or not. A link will be sent to members the day before, noting the time of meeting.
