  • Idolatries of the Mind and Spirit

    Sunday, May 31st 

    Some have argued that we live in a disenchanted world now--free of superstition and magic. The idolatries of celebrity culture, nationalism and consumer capitalism paint a different picture.

     

  • Coming up @ the Fellowship

  • Congregation Meetings

               
    If you just decided you can quit reading, because you are not coming—that you don’t concern yourself with the business of the congregation—please reconsider. We are shaping what the Congregation is going to become and every voice is essential. 
     
    As many of you know, there is a process for interim ministry. We look at the past, present and future. We are currently working on the present. The first step of the “now” work was a survey, which many of you filled out—thank you!  The transition team was gathering information and we were hoping to prime the pump for shared conversations. The next steps will be two congregational meetings—on May 31st and June 14th after the service. 
     
     
    We will, together, tease out what the survey tells us. We will also look at how we are running the congregation and think about what is working, what needs to be released and what is missing. Rev. Sollie has used the metaphor of getting our ship ready to sail—of making this vessel seaworthy. It is our hope that through these conversations we can imagine a way of operating the fellowship which is life-giving and joyful. Once our ship is shipshape, we will be ready to begin the final part of the interim process—discerning and articulating where this congregation wants to go in the future.

     


  • Community Events

  • COVID-19 Response

    Dear Ones,

    In an effort to mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19 and protect our members, we have the following updates:

    The building is closed. Please continue to meet via Zoom. Elizabeth Sollie can help you set up meetings if you need assistance. interimminister@bismanuu.org

    We now have a Zoom account. If you would like to use it for a committee or Chalice Circle meeting please contact Marcy to set up!

    Rev. Sollie will have Zoom office hours for business or emotional support.

     

    Wednesdays at 6:00pm-7pm

    Join Zoom Meeting

    Thursdays at 10:00am-11am 

    Join Zoom Meeting

    https://zoom.us/j/550669923

     

    And of course, Rev. Sollie is always happy to visit with you one-on-one via Zoom, or the telephone.  Call or e-mail for an appointment. 

    We are very aware that this is a fragile and difficult time and many people feel isolated and worried. Many of us need our religious community more than ever. We also feel a responsibility to do our part in reducing the spread of COVID 19 and reduce the risk to potentially vulnerable people so the board and the minister will make decisions based on these things as we go along. 

    Please take care of yourselves and follow social distancing and hygiene precautions as much as possible.
