CORONAVIRUS POLICY: Our buildings closed for public use

CVUUS will adhere to the Governor’s executive order when determining whether and how CVUUS facilities will be used. In cases where CVUUS’s mission to serve the wider community involves work that arguably falls within the Governor’s standards for “necessary activity,” the minister will have the authority to approve use of CVUUS facilities for that work if advised by one of the several medical professionals in the congregation that such a course of action is safe for those doing the work and those in the broader community with whom they may subsequently come in contact.

Words from Rev. Barnaby

From the Minister

Dear Congregants – The idea of a monthly letter from me to you suddenly strikes me as a relic of the past. Most of my recent messages to our lay leaders and to the congregation at large have be revising the plans we made within the past few days in response to pandemic developments. I recently began emailing daily CommUUnion messages to you. What could I possibly say in this letter about CVUUS that I know will be as true on the last day of April as the first?

       We had a wonderful response to our first effort March 26 to supply bag lunches to the team from the Zen Center distributing them to homeless folks in Rutland. The only thing I know for sure about that program in April is that it is going to morph, perhaps dramatically, as the weeks pass and the pandemic spreads.

       We recently created an online spread sheet where you can request and offer help to each other in many categories. I have no idea whether enough of you will check it often enough for it to take root in April as a part of our communal life. Read More about “From the Minister”
