Invitation to a Weekly Online Worship

Pacific Yearly Meeting 2018-2019 Eldering Subcommittee of Ministry and Oversight

Invitation to a Weekly Worship with Attention to the Spiritual Wellness of Our Pacific Yearly Meeting

All Pacific Yearly Meeting Friends are invited to an ongoing online meeting for worship with attention to the spiritual wellness of our yearly meeting. Sponsored and hosted by the Eldering Subcommittee of Ministry and Oversight, with the endorsement of the Yearly Meeting Clerk, Sandy Kewman, and Assistant to the Clerk, Sharon Gates, this half-hour meeting for worship will be held on the Zoom video conferencing platform Wednesdays, 7:00 pm Pacific Time.  Dress code is casual.

How it works:  Download the Zoom app to your computer, tablet, or phone at  https://zoom.us/  At 7:00 pm on Wednesdays, enter the meeting number, or click on the link.  You can also participate by calling in on your telephone to one of the numbers below.  We will start in worship, so please mute your microphone or phone as soon as you enter, and remember to unmute if you have spoken ministry to share.  If you forget to mute, the member of the Eldering Subcommittee who is hosting may mute you. If you click “Gallery View,” you will be able to see everyone, Hollywood Squares style.  If not, you will see only one person on “Speaker View.” Gallery View feels more like meeting for worship. For technical assistance, please email Carl Magruder at theearthquaker@gmail.com, or Mica Estrada at cheerful.mica@gmail.com

Though skeptical about online worship at first, those of us who have tried it find this time together spiritually nourishing, and have come to look forward to Wednesday evenings with anticipation.

It is not expected that anyone will have perfect weekly attendance, but that the meeting will be kept by those who join in on any given Wednesday.

With Gratitude,

Eldering Subcommittee of M&O
