July 12  “Ongoing Transformation: Notes from UUA General Assembly”, Rev. Sam Trumbore

Though the Unitarian Universalist Association was not able to gather physically in Providence, Rhode Island, we were able to meet virtually using Zoom technology. Even with UU musicians and youth leaders boycotting the service, General Assembly still happened, important business got done, the yearly ritual services like the Services of the Living Tradition and the Synergy Bridging service occured, workshops were offered, and UUs from around the country and around the world connected with each other.  Come hear from a few who attended what they are bringing back and Rev. Trumbore’s observations, and President Patti Jo Newell’s ideas about how we can participate in the ongoing transformation of UUism.

Rev. Sam Trumbore has served as minister of Albany UU since the fall of 1999. His Master of Divinity is from Starr King School for the Ministry in Berkeley, California conferred in 1989 and was ordained to the UU ministry in 1992. Before coming to Albany UU, he served a small Fellowship in Port Charlotte, Florida for six years. He is married to Philomena Moriarty and they have an adult son Andrew.

Wearing your Zoom “Name Tag”
 
When signing into a Zoom worship service on a Sunday morning, you can’t put on your traditional name tag to be welcoming to others, but you CAN rename your screen so that it displays your full name. This is the new way to practice hospitality with everyone who is part of the online worship service.
 
To change your screen name, look for three white dots, usually appearing in the upper right corner of your zoom window when you hover over it with your cursor. Click the dots, and a dropdown menu will appear. One of the options in the dropdown menu is “Rename.” Click that option, and a box will pop up that displays the name currently showing in your Zoom window. If it’s not your full name or names, change it to your name(s) and click the “Save” button.
 
If you have any questions, feel free to send an Usher a message in the Chat on a Sunday or email Tammy Hathaway – admin@albanyuu.org anytime. Thanks for taking this extra step to be welcoming!
