LOVE IS THE SPIRIT OF THIS CHURCH,
AND SERVICE IS ITS PRAYER.
A TIME OF TRANSITION, PART II: THE PLACE IN BETWEEN
Sunday, May 15, 10:50 am, Worship Service Livestream
Rev. Vanessa Rush Southern, Senior Minister, preaching
In-person @ UUSF and Online
William Bridges, when he wrote about transitions, didn't just talk about the Endings, though he did name that first stage and all it required. And he didn't talk about the New Beginnings though that also was tender and vital. He talked about this rarely named space in between those two. And all that happens in that space and how it feels and how to step thoughtfully into and through it. This is what we'll talk a little about this Sunday, and you might find the description familiar and relevant to a lot of life at this moment!

ANNOUNCING OUR NEW MINISTER
The Reverend Laura Shennum
It is my pleasure to announce, along with the Search Advisory Team, that the Rev. Laura Shennum will be joining our staff next fall as our new Minister of Congregational Life, stepping into the role that Rev. Alyson Jacks has served these last 10 years. Rev. Shennum comes to us after more than a decade of experience in the Unitarian Universalist ministry, religious education and in depth training and experience in chaplaincy, and we are very excited about the possibilities of her leadership and experience on our shared journey into this next chapter of life together.
May 11, 2022
The UUSF COVID Advisory Group has chosen to maintain our current safety practices for the foreseeable future. This means:
Vaccination required for entry
Masks required while indoors.
Strong encouragement to wear a N95, KN95 mask, or a surgical mask.
Social distancing recommended while indoors
There will be no childcare available on Sundays at UUSF starting May 15. Because children under 5 are not vaccinated, a room has been set aside in the TSK room so that parents can watch the service remotely and safely. Parents of infants who are still breastfeeding are welcome into the Sanctuary. Childcare resumes in September.
UUSF SAFETY POLICIES (7.1.2021)
To promote the health and wellbeing of all who attend meetings or worship in our sanctuary and center, UUSF currently will:
Require evidence of vaccination and boosters, if eligible, from participants
Encourage the use of well-fitting masks
Encourage distancing e.g., among congregants, singers, musicians, and staff
Provide ventilation/circulation/air purification as possible
Provide opportunities for hygiene, e.g. cleansing hands and surfaces
Ask attendees to confirm they are not currently sick and were not recently exposed to COVID
Ask or require members and staff to be antigen or PCR tested under certain circumstances.
