Our community is small enough to all fit on a zoom call and have a shared homily so it it is a very intimate experience for people having us “visit” their home. Some introverted people have shared more since we went online.

Jacob, all masks are removed in this liminal period. The masks of pseudo-civility, "niceness", of the short-lived middle-classness are like a veil that is being stripped away. We now can see one of the connections between religion and Empire.
Rev. Dr. Roland Stringfellow (He/Him)

We are a Roman Catholic Community so we have a para-liturgy rather than Mass with communion. So missing the actual communion and the physical connection with all the members.

What would be a creative way of celebrating Thankfulness (not Thanksgiving) at University campuses during these times.
Hilary Howes (She/Her)
47:33
I give people breakout rooms for 10 minutes after the service so they get to have a conversation one on one. Maybe should just call it coffee hour and let them stay as long as they like.

how does it feel to have increased concern about "production" i.e., the look / sound of the production?
Holly Merz (she/her)

This has been hit on a little bit, but even when things get back to "business as usual" what aspects of our current circumstances might you think about continuing?
Susan Solverson

as someone with mulitple chemical and environmental sensitivity, i love that no one on zoom uses any scented products, so i can go to services again. and i have disabled friends who can now do the same. challenging as this is, we hope that zoom will continue as it gives us community. wonder what other positives folks are experiencing.

Rev. Carla, one has to not only see the chain, but must also feel the chain, in order to break the chain; empathy is one of the main ways we break the chain - the responses to others' losses due to COVID-19. UMBUNTU not only means I am because we are, it also means I am in pain because we are in pain.
Holly Merz (she/her)
