with Puget Sound Worship Collaborative
Speaker: Rev. Joe Rettenmaier
Sunday, July 11, 2021, 10:30 a.m.
As our mask-free summer now opens to more outdoor living, we find prime opportunities to learn and expand our interdependent capacity for love so all living beings may thrive.
Tahoma UU Sabbatical Minister, Rev. Joe Rettenmaier, received his M.Div. from Meadville-Lombard Theological School in 2019. Since 1988 and leading up to his recent years in ministry, his professional livelihood was centered primarily on media production and marketing communications management within startup organizations here in our Salish Sea. This experience continues to shape his ministries of dismantling American white fragility and systemic racism, and reversing climate change.
Puget Sound Worship Collaborative Summer Worship Services will be offered via this Zoom Meeting link. The services with Northlake UU Church, Saltwater UU Church, and Tahoma UU Congregation will only be offered via Zoom at the time of the worship service on Sundays at 10:30 a.m., and will not be recorded. The summer worship service Zoom address is a different Zoom address than the one that has been used by TUUC for worship services during pandemic time, so please use this link. You may also join on Zoom using Meeting ID 736 142 4210 for video and audio. To join by phone, dial 669-900-6833 and enter Meeting ID: 736 142 4210 when prompted. Please remember to use your actual name when logging in, so you can be recognized and admitted to the Zoom meeting room.
Offering “plate” donations collected during Sunday worship services in July and August will be split between the congregation receiving the donation and a Share the Plate recipient. You can make contributions to Tahoma UU Contribution each Sunday, and the donation links will be provided during each worship service. In July, Citizens for a Healthy Bay will be the Share the Plate recipient. Citizens for a Healthy Bay works to oppose the Tacoma LNG plant in partnership with the Puyallup Tribe. “The Puyallup Tribe of Indians have long been in opposition to the project, citing the lack of adequate government-to-government consultation as required by law and the 1854 Medicine Creek Treaty, and asserting that the proposed LNG plant would pose serious and unacceptable environmental and public safety risks.”
