Our Mother’s Day speaker, Danielle Neale, will join us by video from a remote, special location. Pianist Whittaker Locke will participate by pre-recorded video for a different but excellent reason—he’ll be visiting his mother on Sunday. That’s why we’ve decided to do this service by Zoom videoconference only. To repeat, we will NOT hold an outdoor service in the Meditation Garden this Sunday. And we’re returning to or original 11 a.m. start time.
Despite these changes, this service promises to be a good one. Danielle Neale, a mother herself, will speak to us from Massachusetts, near the burial place of Julia Ward Howe. She’s the 19th Century Unitarian Universalist poet, pacifist and abolitionist who in 1870 wrote the original Mother’s Day proclamation, which was not exactly a Hallmark card.
Please do join us by videoconference. Here’s the link for the live Zoom service on Sunday.* (We also record our services and later post them on our YouTube channel.)
After the last hymn, we stop recording the service and open Zoom’s virtual floor for questions, comments and digital socializing.
Danielle has been speaking to us remotely because she and her family have moved to Pennsylvania. She remains an active member via the magic of the Internet, and she still teaches anthropology at Columbus State University.
Guests are always welcome. We’re one of the homes of liberal religion in the Chattahoochee Valley. It that appeals to you, here we are!
- Our May 16 Sunday Service, with Mindfulness teacher Joanie Andras, also will be on Zoom at 11 a.m.
- On May 23, we’ll return indoors to Grace Fellowship Hall for the first time in more than a year. John Kamisky and Barry White will talk about The Mountain, the UU retreat center in Highlands, N.C. Again, the service will begin at 11 a.m.
