This Sunday at UCCSV - 10/17/21

As we continue our worship series Finding Our Way Again with Curiosity, Courage, and Connection our question this week is "How should we relate to others?" There's at least one recent commercial where a couple is anticipating interacting with friends. The wife knows the friends are coming over in person and plans accordingly. Her spouse thought the meeting was on Zoom, as all meetings had been before, and enters the room without wearing pants. After over a year and a half of the pandemic it's hard to remember how to be in a room with people again. To remember the camera isn't off. How should we be together in worship now? Do we talk to others more or less now? Will the masks we have to wear mean we cannot fully interact? Relocating ourselves in the world means we have to remember how to be with other people and to be a part of the wider community. When Paul tells Timothy to "Come Quickly" we are reminded of what it means to be together with others and how that impacts our lives. Join us for worship this week at 10am as we consider how to reconnect to people both in person and online.
