UUCL Spiritual Survey - March 2020
The Covid19 pandemic compels us to develop exceptional lifestyle and exceptional ways of connecting with others. We - UUCL's ministry team - welcome input from you, the congregation, about your hopes and needs for connections from the UUCL staff and lay leaders during this time when we cannot come together in person as a gathered religious community. Your completion of this survey will help us (program staff and lay leaders) assess spiritual and faith development offerings which would be of most benefit to you.
Please note that another survey on pastoral care and needs will be coming soon in another all-church communication. Meanwhile, community resources are being compiled here:
What kind of "worship"-style content would best support you? These would be led by members of the ministry team (Rev. Barbara, Lenore, Eli, Worship Associates...)
Sunday morning interactive sacred space: Shorter (half hour) facilitated interaction around a spiritual theme, a poem, reflecting on our lives, etc. on Zoom. (We are leading this, this Sunday at 10AM!)
Sunday morning broadcast worship: Full-length (1-hour) worship services, broadcast via UUCL YouTube/Facebook Live (not interactive)
7AM Sunday radio: listening at home as "On Being" is broadcast on public radio, with optional pair/group conversation after
Virtual Vespers: Shorter (half hour) contemplative worship: music, meditation, sharing (usually evenings) on Zoom
Recorded resources: worship services from other UU congregations, etc.
What times would be best for you to connect with UUCL?
What kind of other faith resources would best support you?
Remote Coffee Hour: Check-in conversations, without program content
Small-groups: Gathering online periodically with the same Soul Matters or other small group (either new or established)
Daily chalice lightings & other at-home resources on your own time
A Facebook discussion group focused on spiritual support in this pandemic: members and staff to post readings & resources and discuss them with one another
Online embodied spiritual practice: yoga, journey dance...
Multi-generational activities: members volunteering to read stories with children, all-ages movie night...
