This Memorial Day weekend, please join Rev. Theresa Soto and worship associate Bill Blakely for a special service to be celebrated live on Zoom! This Sunday we will observe Memorial Day with the theme of “Swords into Ploughshares.” Special pastoral elements will be offered to hold our experiences of the continuing pandemic. Bring an adhesive bandage (or any that you use) for a grief and healing ritual. You will need a Zoom link to join. Please email email@example.com to request the Zoom details for Sunday’s live online worship service.
The live Zoom worship service will be recorded and made available immediately afterward on Rev. Theresa Soto’s YouTube channel and on First Unitarian Church of Oakland’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/
We continue to do the embracing meditation on Sunday mornings via Facebook Live on the First Unitarian Church of Oakland Facebook page.
At 10:20 AM, the meditation will start and you will be able to read others’ comments and put the things you’re thinking of with care in your own comments.
