The Springfield UU Meetinghouse is continuing to function at full tilt on-line! We have had many meetings, groups and services on-line using Zoom these past weeks. It’s wonderful to stay connected. At the on-line “Tea Time” I hosted, the ten of us who were on the call enjoyed seeing each other and sharing stories and experiences. We were finding a lot of silver linings in the current changes. One person said she missed being with people and it was heart-warming to be able to see and talk with her friends electronically. The technology has been such a great blessing that has enabled us to keep going. – Rev. Mellen Kennedy
We’ll be posting Zoom links to our services and events below in the designated sections.

One of the bravest things we can do is face the legacy of enslavement and racial injustice upon which this country was founded. Service followed by discussion on how we’re responding to the racial justice uprising.and “coffee hour.”

Who Will We Be Post Pandemic?
Friends on the Path Discussion Group
You’re invited to join a group to explore together how we have been changed by the virus – the good, the bad, the hopeful – and who we want to be and the world we envision after the pandemic. The purpose of the group is making friends, growing spiritually, and co-creating a beautiful, justice, sustainable future together.
The group will meet every two weeks for 1 ¼ hours on-line on Zoom, for the next two months and we’ll reassess after that. Each group will have about seven members and be facilitated by trained facilitators, including Rev. Mellen, Jeff Taft-Dick, Laurel Green and Sharon Mueller. Help will be provided for new Zoom users; you may also dial into the group by telephone. All Welcome!
We have groups planned for Tuesday evening, Wednesday afternoon, Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. It’s not too late to join one!
If You’re interested in participating in a group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
