Dear Reader,

Here is your Friday, July 10, 2020 edition of the Tapestry weekly digest of upcoming events and special announcements. All events are open to anyone who wishes to join.

Upcoming Sunday Service at 11:00 AM:

The Shape of Our Relationships
by Randy Partain

Join us via Zoom by clicking here at 11 am on Sunday: https://zoom.us/j/913791840?pwd=MHl0eGFTK2FGa1hVSXh1ejZxUGlQUT09

Human relationships are never just between two people. We naturally form triangles and more complex interconnected shapes in our relationships. We talk about triangulation as a reaction to anxiety, but can the natural shape of human connection help us honor our covenants and hold one another accountable with compassion? And how can intentionally building healthier personal relationships transform the world around us toward greater justice?


Minister's Discretionary Fund

Welcoming Congregation Committee Now Forming

The Welcoming Congregation Committee (WCC) is asking for volunteers, helpers, and brainstormers, so we can schedule a zoom meeting. We will begin to formulate a covenant to anchor ourselves. James Glines, the team lead, suggests a 10:30 am breakout room next Sunday after morning Forum for volunteers, willing participants to gather direction and come up with immediate action, + formulate a WCC Covenant to affirm and move forward. Review our website, review our mission/vision/covenant as well as "do work" and read up UUA content, like https://www.uua.org/lgbtq/welcoming/program/how-to-run for structure, ideas, inspiration and planning. Please contact wcc@uutapestry.org for more information or to join our team.

Audio-Visual Group Forming

If you have experience in A/V technology (such as audio mixing, live streaming, or video recording) and would like to volunteer to serve Tapestry in the planning and implementation of this important addition in our outreach to our global community, please email worship@uutapestry.org.

Tapestry Caring Team

Young AdUUlts Group

If you are interested in joining our group please join us in the YA breakout room following worship on Sunday. We will be discussing how often we would like to meet, activities we may be interested in, and our covenant. For more information contact ya@uutapestry.org.

Morning Forum

Your Chalice Lighting Videos

We are looking for anyone willing to make a video of themselves or children even the whole family, lighting a chalice. It’s nice to see other people on Sunday lighting our chalice during service. So get them candles out and the martini glasses and light away. Send your videos to zoom@uutapestry.org and the zoom team will take care of the rest to get your video in the rotation for Sunday services.

Virtual Voter Registration Training Coming

Also, pass out these flyers wherever you can: grocery stores, banks, etc. Email voterregistration@uutapestry.org for more information.

Tapestry Book Club

The Mixed Bag Book Club will be reading, “Born A Crime” by Trevor Noah. Our meeting will be Thursday July 23rd at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom. Trevor, a TV talk show host and comedian has written a compelling, inspiring and comical autobiography of his life living in South Africa during apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. The CRIME in this story is being born the product of a white father and an African mother which was punishable by five years in prison. This book describes his life being hidden from public the first few years and growing up a brilliant child getting into trouble and how he and his mother deal with it. His mother, Patricia Nombuyiselo Noah is a brave example of fighting for the future of your child. See you there, July 23rd. If you have any questions please email bookclub@uutapestry.org.
