Sunday I had the opportunity to present to my fellowship a talk titled UU & You - Where can you connect to UU's Online. After a momentary stressful moment in the morning when I wasn't sure if my adapter for my MacBook Pro would work - it did - it went well. I brought my wireless router and was able to be online in real time while I showed them some of the resources online.
I thought I would share them here - perhaps there are things you don't know about (although I doubt that):
Unitarian Universalist Association
This is where you will find resources for church services, programs, resolutions, church locations, history, etc. If there is news or information about the UUA that you need this is your first stop.
Our Fellowship Homepage
You can check the services, send guests who would want more information, and share with friends/family. Thank you for Doug for updating the site!
Twitter is a site that allows you to update people you choose to follow and who follow you with what you are doing in 140 characters. These can be sent/received via text message if you choose. You can follow the updates of the UUA (along with many other large companies, news media, and members of the congregation.)
UUA Lists (EMAIL LISTS)
If you are interested in connecting to any number of people in the UUA on a particular issue this is the site for you. You can join these lists for free and start conversing on a number topics. Remember if you don't like a lot of email to sign up with DIGEST as the preferred way of receiving email.
This is a lovely photo sharing site - if you take digital photos and you want to share them with friends and family you might consider Flickr. They also have a UU group you can join!
This site is used to share photos, updates, link your blog, with family and friends. Remember if you have teens/young adults to ask if they want to connect with you on Facebook - this is their turf and you don't want to be a stalker. It is a great way though to connect with your past friends, alumni and, of course, UU's.
Did you read an article that you loved in the UU World publication that you want to share with friends? Now you can send them the link or read past issues yourself.
This site connects professionals to their network and allows you to be introduced to their network. If you have worked in a variety of positions/companies this is a nice way to connect with them.
This is the blog aggregator for Unitarians who write blogs. If you are interested in what other people are thinking this is a fun place to find witty statements or deep thoughts. If you write a blog you can submit yours (you will be accepted!) to be part of the blog aggregator. You don't have to write about UU things at all - you are part of the community JUST because you are UU.
UU Audio Sermons
This is a resource of over 2200 sermons that are recorded from a variety of congregations. A GREAT resource.
Actual Slide Show that was presented
You can see the actual slide show here: It is still being translated into Slide Share Land: but perhaps it is working now.
And the blogs I know about written by our Fellowship members - if you have one please share with the group!
I received this email today from a member of the Fellowship: "I almost didn't come to church today because it sounded boring but you made it really interesting! Great job." Well, I guess I did ok - or at least I didn't put them to sleep!
