Come share a joy that you experienced this week. Each Friday at 11, we’ll light the chalice and take turns sharing our joyful experiences to kick off the weekend. Did you get that great parking space at the grocery store? Did you connect with a long lost friend? Did you start a new hobby? All joys, big and small, are welcome. If you don’t have a joy to share, join us anyway and bask in the positivity! We look forward to joyful sharing! Click to join the meeting: https://uufws.org/virtual-joys-with-joyce

Misako Kay, who was a tai chi instructor at Robinhood Y (and other local places) before COVID closed us down, will offer free Monday afternoon tai chi classes for UU members. All classes will meet outside in the UU parking area, weather permitting.
“Writing as a Spiritual Practice” functions as a 'virtual' drop-in group. Once you register through the Zoom link https://uufws.org/virtual-writing-spiritual-practice, you can choose to attend as many sessions as you like, using the same Zoom link every time. Please arrive on time to any session that you attend. After we take a moment to say hello and introduce ourselves, I will share a quotation and a writing prompt - then everyone will write for about ten minutes. Bring paper and a pen or pencil - of course it's also fine if you prefer to write on your laptop.
