May 10 Service at 10:30 on Zoom
A Pteradarktyl is the big ugly dinosaur bird and a metaphor for my depression. But this service’s readings will only be about ten percent Pteradarkyl. Instead I will cover such scenes as: propping up the corners my mouth in prep school, water dropping from my kitchen ceiling and how that led to Elaine’s and my wedding, our bizarre introduction to this church, my later attempts at explaining to my father what NSUU is all about, and the secret divulged to my fifteen-year-old daughter Erin before bedding down for the night in an Arizona campground.
The service will not follow the usual format of a Sunday service, although it will have a meditation and cares and celebrations.
May 3 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom
Rev. Shayna Appel
While the coronavirus pandemic has certainly impacted all of our lives in the moment, what are the lessons we have learned from it and will bring forward with us when it comes to pass?
Please join us as we come together in community to hear the thoughtful words of Rev. Shayna Appel. Raised Jewish, Rev. Shayna Appel found herself called to a ministry at the intersection of both Judaism and Christianity. In addition to her service to several churches across New England, Shayna serves as Chaplain to Townsend and Peterborough Fire Departments, the MA Corps of Fire Chaplains, the Granite State Critical Incident Stress Management Team and the UU Trauma Response Ministry team. She currently lives in Milford, NH, with Arlo the dog and Hidee the cat. She spends her spare time at the stable with Sunflower (Sunny) the American Standardbred horse.
Cares and Celebrations: Please send your cares and celebrations to email@example.com so that they can be shared with the congregation and a candle lit in the sanctuary.
Please make sure you are on mute throughout the service. Background noises are greatly amplified and distracting.
