The Joy of Collaborating

“The Joy of Collaborating”
Worship Service
with Puget Sound Worship Collaborative

Speakers: Rev. Joe Rettenmaier and Rev. Kristen Kuriga
Sunday, August 29, 2021, 10:30 a.m.

This summer we came together as three congregations in one worshipping community. In our final week of the summer collaborative we will reflect on the joys we experienced by being together. What gifts have we received? What have we learned together that we couldn’t learn on our own? Come celebrate the joy of collaboration!

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.

Rev. Kristen Kuriga is the Minister of Saltwater UU Church in Des Moines, WA. Prior to being called at Saltwater, she trained as a chaplain, and served as the Social Justice and South Bay Ministry Teams Coordinator at the First UU Church of San Diego. Rev. Kristen’s passion in ministry is at the intersection of spiritual practice, social justice, and art.

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 August, BLUU Housing Initiative will be the Share the Plate recipient. The BLUU Northside Housing Cooperative Initiative is a project that embodies our commitment to improve the material conditions of Black lives as an act of our faith.
