Worship

Our UUs of Greater Pittsburgh buildings closed in March 2020 due to COVID-19 precautions. While intermittent in-person worship is happening again at some congregations, the current UUA reccomendation is to be cautious and patient as COVID-19 cases are again spiking and pose a significant health risk.
"We must remain flexible in our plans, policies and guidance, centering care for the most vulnerable and staying committed to protecting each other's health and safety." - UUA President Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray. Read the latest COVID-19 Guidance for Congregations from the UUA.
Several of our worship teams have been using this transformative opportunity for collaboration to create a weekly online worship experience where all are welcome - Greater Pittsburgh UUs, free-range UUs, moved away folks, seekers, anyone can join. Congregations may also be offering their own online worship as their resources allow.
You can also check in with the congregations below for their latest info on worship schedules, topics, and speakers.

Words for Worship

We’re staying home. Love has never asked this of us before. We’re staying home, this is our gift to humanity. Let us wish each other well.
For those staying home alone, I offer you this blessing. May you grow a deeper understanding of your own worth. Dear one, leaven the aloneness with gentle care, for this too shall pass. May you be blessed with a peace and serenity; may you find the courage to reach out to hear another’s voice and to remember others need you too. May you be well.
For those staying home together. I offer you this blessing. May you find moments of patience and grace in your relations. May you offer each other enough time apart, reassurance and space enough to cry, to safely rage, for this too shall pass. Then, let peace come again into your home. May you see one another’s whole self as a gift. May you be well.
For those working from home, I offer you this blessing. May you remember to take breaks. May you find the means to relish your imperfection and the imperfection of others as evidence of our shared humanity. You are enough even when there isn’t enough. Make order in your days and then let it go. May you be well.
For those staying home with children, I offer you this blessing. May you find humor and compassion in your days. There will be learning of a different kind, deeper no doubt, unexpected for sure. May there be patience and forgiveness, again, and again, and again. For this too shall pass. May you all remember the deep love that brought your family into being. May there be peace and understanding in your home.
May you be well. May we be well. May it be so.

If we have learned anything in the last year and half, it’s that we never really know what’s coming next, either in the world at large or in our lives as individuals. Whatever our plans might be, life marches on, following the beat of its own drummer. How do we participate in the rhythms of life rather than fighting them?
