Reading as Spiritual Practice

Online worship through zoom

Rev. Cynthia Westby, Westside UU

Reading helps us live in this world, allows us to explore meaning and truths, and inspires and pushes us to engage in serious reflection about our lives.  In this challenging time reading is a shared comfort for many of us. Our reading can inspire individual or community spiritual practice – powerful and engaging mindfulness practice.  Come learn about various spiritual practices to use with the books you love.

Summer Worship Collaborative
In the months of July and August are worshipping virtually with three other congregations: Northlake UU of Kirkland, Westside UU of West Seattle, and Cedars UU of Bainbridge. This worship collaborative is an opportunity to strengthen the relationship between our congregations and find new and creative ways to worship. Each week there will be leadership from the different congregations using a shared order of service created for our summer worship together. We will also be alternating between social hour with all the congregations one week, and social hour with just Saltwater folks the next Sunday.

If this is your first time using Zoom, follow the prompts to download the application to your computer. It will be helpful if you have a high-speed internet connection.  For some connections, a pair of headphones will be helpful (a simple pair of earbuds will do.) 

If you would prefer to join by phone, dial 1-669-900-6833 and enter Meeting ID: 736 142 4210 when prompted.  Long distance charges may apply, so it is best to call from a cell phone.   If you have a smartphone, you can download the Zoom app and join with Meeting ID: 736 142 4210 for video and audio connection.
