This Sunday’s Virtual Service – More Than a Pretty Picture

August 29 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Beth Blanchard

I’ll explore some of the insights and inspirations that photographers use, and what they experience, while taking  the photographic images we enjoy. Using photographs, we will think about how photography impacts both the  photographer and you, the viewer. Perhaps you will also discover a few new ways to add interest and dimension  to your own camera work as you take, and appreciate, your own photographs.

This Sunday’s Virtual Service – Staying Sane in the Midst of a Global Pandemic

August 22 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Jeri Kroll

What has kept you sane during this past pandemic year? We all coped in our own individual ways. Some took  up baking or gardening or exercise of some sort. Some of us over-ate with joyful abandon while others seized  the opportunity to become our best physical selves. Most of us stocked up on toilet paper and home delivery of  groceries became commonplace. Somehow all of us found ways to connect with each other. We zoomed our  way forward as we were forced, some kicking and screaming, to learn new computer technology. “You’re on  mute”, became the most uttered phrase of 2020-2021.  

In her reflections, Jeri Kroll, NSUU member, will share what she found most helpful in making it through this  past year with some semblance of sanity.

This Sunday’s Virtual Service – The Importance of Religious Education and Exploration

August 15 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Samantha McCune

Perhaps you attended religious education when you were young or are someone who has taught religious education in the past. Maybe you studied religion in college, in your own free time, or not at all. Regardless, we are all on our own journeys in life, and there will be times when we learn more about our own spiritual and religious beliefs and practices, as well as those of others. Join our Director of Religious Exploration Samantha McCune in contemplating why Religious Education and Exploration is important in our world and in our church. Samantha will reflect on both her time studying religion in college, as well as teaching Religious Exploration at Northshore Church.

This Sunday’s Virtual Service – Spiritual Trajectories

August 8 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Jennifer Revill

The word “trajectory” implies more than just a path; it’s a path overlaid with the function of time. The spiritual experience of most human beings could be said to be a trajectory; this is usually called a spiritual “journey.”Each of our journeys is unique and takes shape because ofwhowe are, wherewe are, whenwe are, and the environment and context of our lives. This service offers some ways to think about our own individual spiritual trajectories -their origins and destinations, and the forces that shape them.

This Sunday’s Virtual Service – Summer Reading Service

August 1 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Edith Fenton

The Summer Reading Service will offer an overview of the types of books that have been published in the past year and how those titles reflect the issues of our current culture. Our hope is that each of you will speak briefly about the book that has been most meaningful to you over the last year. Reading was something we could do when there was no place to go. Now that we have places to go again, there is still time to read good books. I will develop a list of books including those you suggest.

This Sunday’s Virtual Service – The “New Normal”

July 25 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Terri Hansen

After our historic and earth-shaking pandemic year, we are happily approaching a return to normal. But can we  ever return to normal again? What was the old normal anyway? What have we lost and what have we gained?  And what would a new normal look like in our lives now – on a personal level – on a congregational level – or  even perhaps on a national level? We may not have all the answers to these questions, but we ought to consider  them, and perhaps seek some spiritual guidance as we face the future.
