Dear Reader,

Here is your Saturday, March 28, 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:


Staying Home
by Randy Partain

In Rumi's poem "A Community of the Spirit" he wrote: Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open? Some of us may be thinking of our current situation as something of a prison. Some of us may be feeling overwhelmed. What if we are refusing to open a gift, just because it is wrapped in an ugly box? Yes, we need to commiserate with one another. There is no doubt that our circumstances are challenging. But also, what encouragement can we offer one another? What inspiration? What hopeful vision for the world must we prepare for? Join us for a time of reflection on the spirituality of staying home and what it can mean for our community.


Upcoming Events From Our Calendar:


March 30 (Monday), 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM: Program Council (Zoom)

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Program Council has chosen to meet twice in March to keep up to date on the virus and our community's needs. An invitation to the Zoom virtual meeting has been emailed to all Tapestry leaders. Until then, be safe and stay home as much as possible.


April 4 (Saturday) - 11:59 PM: Weaving Our Lives

A new personal growth group led by Randy Partain begins today.
The group will meet every other Saturday for 12 sessions.

The Beyond the Book Club will be discussing the movie "Parasite" (Academy Award for Best Picture, 2020) at our next meeting on April 15, 6:30-8 pm. We will meet via the video sharing app ZOOM. A link for the meeting will be sent to everyone on the BTB Club distribution list prior to the meeting. Please contact Geoff at president@uutapestry.org if you do not have access to the movie or for additional information.

The Mixed Bag Book Club will be reading Sojourner Truth, A Life, A Symbol by Nell Irvin Painter this month. Sojourner Truth: ex-slave and fiery abolitionist, figure of imposing physique, riveting preacher and spellbinding singer who dazzled listeners with her wit and originality. Straight-talking and unsentimental, Truth became a national symbol for strong black women--indeed, for all strong women. We will meet Thursday, March 26th at 6:30 via Zoom meetings. All are invited. Please call Debbie Robison at 713-492-4916 for further details. See you there!!
