"Our Sunday morning gatherings become complicated during a time of pandemic. Many Unitarian Universalist congregations and communities are choosing to livestream their services so that members can connect to their faith community at a familiar time. Creating online worship—whether it's live or recorded—involves a series of learning curves, which means nothing will be perfect and mistakes will be made. (Forgive yourself!) To learn more, we invite you to explore our primer on the technical aspects of online worship. Once you grow comfortable with the learning curve of technology, how do we create online worship that's engaging, sensory-rich, and a deeply meaningful experience? On Wednesday, March 25, WorshipWeb's Rev. Erika Hewitt will host a 90-minute Zoom webinar with Marcia McFee at 9 a.m. Pacific / 10 a.m. Mountain / 11 a.m. Central / Noon Eastern. "Enriching Online Worship" will focus on ways to imbue our online gatherings with more authenticity, intimacy, and beauty for a people who long for connection. This webinar is open to all Unitarian Universalist religious professionals and worship teams. The webinar will be recorded and published on WorshipWeb by April. Please note: This webinar will not focus on the benefits of different virtual platforms; troubleshooting technology; or copyright matters. Instead, this is a "102" level webinar for worship teams and religious professionals who are familiar with platforms like Zoom and interested in adding depth and meaning to online worship (without striving for perfection).
