Sunday, May 31st. Rev. Dr. Kharma Amos

Don't miss PRIDE Worship this Sunday! And, consider inviting a friend to join us.

Our focus will be on the First Principle of Unitarian Universalism, our belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person, through the specific lens of affirming the LGBTQ+ community. Let's celebrate the progress towards equality that has been made in society AND honor the reality that many people are still marginalized and oppressed because of their sexuality or gender identity. We affirm our commitment to being a welcoming congregation, and to working for sex/gender justice. Several members of our own UUCD Community will share personal reflections, and the gifts they have to offer the world because of their LGBTQ+ identity/experience.

We will have a Guest Musician share some special music with us. Rev. David M. Glasgow (he/him/his) is a Pennsylvania-based pianist, vocalist, composer, actor, and educator. A Credentialed Music Leader in the Association for Unitarian Universalist Music Ministries, he has served the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations as General Assembly Music Coordinator, Music Leadership Certification Program instructor in congregational song-leading, Co-Chair of AUUMM Good Offices, and Conference Planning Committee repertory & resource chair. He has served the UU's of the Cumberland Valley (Boiling Springs, PA) as their music director since 2008.

For details to join us at 10:00 am (suggest arriving a few minutes early), please email UUCDcontact.org for Zoom contact information.

Rev. Dr. Kharma Amos

The month of May in the U.S. often includes Mother's Day and Memorial Day. We combine the two as we honor the various and complicated ways in which we experience having/being mothers, and take time to honor the memories of people who have meant something to us in our lives.

For information about how to attend this service by Zoom, please email [email protected] several days before Sunday to ensure adequate time for response.

Wawa Gift Basket Raffle!

Although they have taken social-distancing steps to ensure the safety of those staying there, the Dover Interfaith Mission for Housing (DIMH) is still feeding even more homeless men than they are housing. UUCD’s monthly commitment to assisting them during these difficult times was fulfilled, this time with the help of Betsy Ross Pizza in Dover. The men had ziti and breadsticks from Betsy Ross, as well as salad and desserts provided by members.

[04/21/20]   May 3rd, Virtual Flower Communion & the Beauty of Diversity

Rev. Dr. Kharma Amos

One of the most distinctive rituals of Unitarian Universalists is Flower Communion, an annual ritual that celebrates beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community. We had planned to participate in this ritual face-to-face (where everyone brings a flower to a common vase, the flowers are blessed and redistributed). Instead, we will be doing so virtually. To accomplish that, we're asking everyone to send a photo of a flower that is blooming close to you (in your home, yard, neighborhood, or a place you hike) to [email protected]). We will be creating a unique video featuring these gifts of the earth from our various locations, and reflecting on the beauty of diversity. Plan ahead--don't wait until May 3rd to send your photo in.

As usual, if you need the Zoom meeting information to attend, please send your request to [email protected].

This is the Common Read for this church year. Many UU churches all over the country will be reading or have already read this book. Consider reading it and joining us.

[04/20/20]   UUCD is participating in the UUA's Common Read program. This year's selection is The Indigenous People's History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz.

Our discussion will be held by Zoom next Sunday, 4/26 at 1:00, as well as 5/10 and 5/24. May 10th is Mother's Day. We will discuss the best time for that meeting during the 4/26th discussion. May 24th will be 1:00.

The book will be divided into thirds for the purposes of discussion (Session 1: Chapters 1-4, Session 2: Chapters 5-8, Session 3: Chapters 9-end of book). The first session will be led by Ed Jackson. The second session will be led by Sara Russell. We will allow 90 minutes for the discussion, but come for as long as you can.

[04/15/20]   4/19 EarthRise: Resurrecting the Earth 10:00 a.m.
Rev. Dr. Kharma Amos

This is the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, a day when we come together to honor, strategize, and act to save a planet in peril. We will focus on this important topic of sustaining the Earth amid a Global Pandemic and also talk about what it means to plan for new life, hope, and "resurrection" during a time when so many faith traditions are celebrating hope, endurance, and forward thinking. Please join us on Zoom. If you want the meeting identification, please email [email protected] and the information will be sent to you.

Unitarian Universalists of Central Delaware (UUCD)

Thank you so much for the wonderful food and help!

For several years, volunteers with UUCD have prepared a meal for the residents of the Dover Interfaith Mission shelter for men on the first Monday of each month. Despite these trying times, we were determined to keep that commitment, and we thank My Roma Pizza (Myroma Pizza) for their enthusiastic help! Their curbside pick-up service and catering sized baked ziti saved the day. 🍝❤️

JOIN UUCD FOR VIRTUAL (ON-LINE) WORSHIP
THIS SUNDAY, APRIL 5th at 10:00 am

Join us Via Zoom by clicking here: https://zoom.us/j/6437071882

This is our first UUCD virtual worship.
The theme is: The Heart of Community
In this time of social / physical distancing, when we cannot gather together, we still need to be in community. Community is more than togetherness. So, what lies at the heart of this thing we call community? What does it mean for us to “be in community” at a time such as this? How can we, right now, gain strength from this spiritual community … even as we experiment with new ways to nurture our connection with one another? Come join us for a time of worship and reflection.

Remote Worship Streaming Service

Dear Ones,

Wednesday night the UUCD Board of Trustees discussed issues affecting the care of our community, including decisions about when, where, and how we meet and connect with one another during this unprecedented COVID-19 Crisis.

First, we want you to know that we are canceling any face-to-face meetings until after 15 May, this is in accordance to Gov John Carney’s State of Emergency restrictions. This includes the cancellation of our face-to-face worship services this Sunday March 22 through Sunday May 10. As we have said in earlier communications, we are complying with the advice offered by the CDC, the UUA, and other federal, state, and local health officials.

At the same time, we realize that our need for community is greater than ever.
We will get through this TOGETHER.

In our recent UUCD Community Needs survey, we learned from you:
About 65% would tune into a virtual worship on Sunday mornings.
About 90% would tune in to a “community check-in” (sharing joys and concerns, generally checking in) in the mid-week timeframe.
NO ONE wanted a phone call.
NO ONE currently needs practical assistance with groceries, errands, etc.
Of course, this could change as we live through this new time. But, we want to respond to your real and expressed needs.

In response to you, we are doing the following:
We are encouraging you to attend a UU Virtual Streaming Worship Service on Sundays, if you would like to. We recommend one or more of the following:
o 10:30am: First U of Wilmington; https://firstuuwilm.org/remote-worship-streaming-service/ (you need to register ahead of time to be sent a link to use each Sunday)
o 11am: Cedar Lane UU; https://www.cedarlane.org/worship-and-sermons
o 9:15am: Arlington UU; http://www.uucava.org/livestream
o 1pm: Foothills UU; https://foothillsuu.org/livestream
o 8pm: Church of the Larger Fellowship; https://www.questformeaning.org/worship
We are going to institute a UUCD Community Check-in for our own community on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm Eastern Time via Zoom (rest assured, we will provide a separate message with instructions on how you can connect and join us).
We are creating a Closed/Private Facebook Group so that members of UUCD can connect anytime to enter chats, share needs, reach out, and offer encouragement. We will send a separate message for how to make this connection.
We want to hear from you as soon as you think you have a need for anything—conversation, spiritual support, practical support (groceries, etc.). Please contact Kharma at [email protected].

We want you to know you are loved, you are valued, you are so important to who we are and what we do as the Unitarian Universalists of Central Delaware, and as people committed to compassionate and just living in the world. We take our primary value of community seriously, and are doing what we know to do. If you have ideas or need anything at all, please contact us via Facebook.

Peace,
Kerry McElwee, President

firstuuwilm.org First Unitarian Church offers the option to watch the worship service live on Sunday mornings.

[03/15/20]   *POSTPONED* 3/22 Life, Love and Lots of Laughs Rev. John Wright

Life is all about improvisation. There's almost never a script. For 12 years Rev Wright was an actor in Otter Productions, a comedy improv group. In this service, he'll reflect on his time with them and how that experience informs his ministry. Rev. Wright is the minister for the UU Fellowship of Salisbury in Maryland.

[03/15/20]   Dear Ones,

We are reaching out to you again to let you know what our process will be moving forward as we continue to monitor and respond to news about COVID-19. As you are no doubt aware, decisions are being made about social activities on a very rapid basis. For example, Delaware Public Schools are now closed for at least 2 weeks. We are paying close attention and carefully considering the advice from the World Health Organization (WHO), US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), as well as state and local government officials.

On a week-by-week basis, the Board of Trustees will meet to discuss and make a decision about UUCD physical face-to face services and meetings. We will communicate to you by email no later than 6 pm each Friday to let you know about worship for the following Sunday. We will continue to update our Facebook and Web pages with this information, as well.

We are considering what we can do to continue to provide spiritual and social support for our community, and invite you to TAKE A QUICK SURVEY to help us better understand your needs, and what types of virtual on-line computer offerings you would find useful.

Please be reassured that our top priority is to care for you and the other members of our community. We want you to be safe and healthy. We also want to do what is responsible to help minimize the spread of this virus, and to care for the most medically vulnerable among us. Let us all take extra care to practice generosity of spirit with others in this time of heightened fear and anxiety. We also encourage you to proactively reach out to one another, since this time of prescribed “social distancing” can also be a time of social isolation. We need the support and encouragement of our spiritual community at times like this more than ever, so let’s be intentional together about nurturing our connections.

The UUCD Board of Trustees:

Kerry McElwee (President), Sandy Nelson (Vice-president), Stephanie Young (Treasurer), Wayne Kling (Secretary), Jayce Lesniewski, Ed Jackson, and Minister, Rev. Dr. Kharma Amos (Ex-officio)
