What is Wellspring Wednesday in a time of COVID?
Unity Church’s Wellspring Wednesday has long been a multi-generational opportunity to gather midweek at church for food, fellowship, and fun. While the church building remains closed due to the pandemic, we continue to gather online for programming. Multi-generational chapel services are prerecorded and posted on the church’s YouTube channel each Wednesday for viewing anytime that afternoon or later; and Unity’s Religious Education program offers Our Whole Lives (OWL) classes for youths and periodic Tweens gatherings on Wednesday evenings.
For adults, one or two live online programs are offered each Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. as opportunities for enrichment, spiritual practice and fellowship. I hope you’ll join us. If you haven’t yet participated in an online program using Zoom, church staff can help you get started. Descriptions and registration links for this month’s programs are listed below. (Unless otherwise noted, you can use the registration link right up until the program starts to participate.) Also watch your daily emails from the church for additional program options that may be announced as the month unfolds. As we say in church each Sunday, “Stay tuned!”
January 27 • 7:00-8:30 p.m.
Dying and Mourning in a Time of Isolation
Dying is a sacred time of life. How do we honor that when we can't even be in the same room together? The pandemic has introduced new ways of thinking about dying even as we become more accustomed to hearing about death. What are your experiences? What are your questions? We will explore the nuances of dying during a time of isolation and how we cope with mourning alone. Presenter Anne Supplee attended her first death and dying class at a summer program between 7th and 8th grade. She worked as a grief counselor and hospice volunteer for many years. Today, she continues to learn in her work as chaplain at the ALS Association and in the Allina Hospital system.
