New Ways to Connect

Dear USC Family,

As you know, due to the local and statewide “shelter-in-place” mandate, we are meeting virtually until further notice.

We are staying on top of the news; and will follow the guidance of our mayor, governor, and local, state and national health officials in discerning when and how to reopen. Your safety is our first priority, and we have learned that we can stay connected with one another utilizing technology.

We had been in the habit of using the same Zoom link for all of our USC events; but in order to keep our gatherings secure, for now we will be generating new links for each Sunday service that require a passcode. We will always be providing that in our weekly electronic newsletter, so if you want to attend our service you will need to subscribe in order to get that information. Please list your entire name when you subscribe.

We are still using our YouTube channel as a gathering place; and you can always access it at your leisure to find videos that we have recorded in the past (there are close to 150 videos for you to watch!).

In addition to our recorded services, you will also find two guided meditations (I will be including more in the future) to do at your leisure, as well as the recording of Helen Ye’s self-care class that was offered in May.

To view the replay of Helen’s wonderful self-care class, go here.

And check out the fun video from USC Music Director Michael Hatfield that will have you smiling as you sing along…you can find that here.

OTHER NEWS IN RESPONSE TO THE CORONAVIRUS…

On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I am holding a Daily Word/guided meditation. This lasts for 15 minutes. If you would like to attend, please email us to get the Zoom link for it.

We in Unity know how important our consciousness is and have a host of wonderful spiritual tools and practices that we can draw upon during these uncertain days to keep us connected to Spirit and to help us choose faith rather than fear. Unity is offering a number of wonderful resources on their website, which you’ll find here.

I want to leave you with this quotation by Sonia Ricotti, which will give you a taste of what we will be exploring on Sunday:

“Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be.”

Sending you an Ocean of Love and keeping you all in my prayers, knowing that the Love of God enfolds you, and looking forward to our live Sunday service and fellowship time on Sunday,

Rev. Maggie Oman Shannon
Senior Minister,
Unity Spiritual Center of San Francisco
