Congregational COVID-19 Survey

All of us in the UUAA community are struggling to cope with the many uncertainties in our lives right now. Included among those is the uncertainty of when we, as a community, can gather in-person again and what our lives might look like three months, six months, or a year from now. 

The UUAA COVID-19 Advisory Team wants to make sure that UUAA can maintain an environment where everyone continues to feel safe and supported whenever the time comes to gradually open our community’s physical doors again.  We will, of course, continue to follow all national, state, and local public health requirements.  And, beyond that, we need to hear from the members and friends of our community about the concerns and needs that you may be holding. 

We realize that in addition to public health considerations, you may have concerns related to personal health factors (pre-existing conditions or health vulnerabilities due to age), emotional factors (possible fears/anxieties related to in-person gatherings at this time; and/or, the need for in-person connection and support), and spiritual factors (the need for meaningful connection in community; and/or, the desire of not wanting to make others sick or inadvertently contribute to the spread of disease).

Recognizing this complexity, we look forward to receiving your responses to this survey.   In the spirit of shared reflection, this page includes links to some of the relevant information and guidance that the UUAA COVID-19 Advisory Team is considering.  We invite you to review this information in advance of completing the survey, if at all possible.

Our Team is committed to considering everyone’s input, as we look for a path forward that meshes science and health-based needs with the emotional and spiritual needs of our UUAA community.

Members and friends of UUAA - wherever you may be physically located, and however you primarily interface with our community (in-person or virtually) - are warmly welcome to respond.  

Please note that while we ask for contact details to allow for transparency and for follow-up where needed, any reported survey results will be aggregated and not include identifying information.

As a special thank you for participating, individuals who fully complete this survey before May 31, 2020 will be entered into a random drawing to receive 1 of 10 signed copies of Rev. Manish’s new edited anthology, Conversations with the Sacred.

We thank you, in advance, for your commitment to and support of our beloved UUAA community.
