Join Rev. Lydia and Rev. Julia the first Saturday of every month from 9:30 am to 11:00 am and a growing band of playmates for this fun and empowering monthly gathering. Playshop is a time for embodying our monthly themes. Using the tools of Interplay (, we improvise with story-telling, movement, singing, and stillness — all based in play — to bring more ease to our lives and integrate body, mind and spirit. Our monthly theme for November is Healing.
Meeting online has offered Rev. Julia the capacity to collaborate with her colleague Rev. Lydia Ferrante-Roseberry, who is the minister at Boulder Valley UU Fellowship and has been leading a Playshop there for a while. They are also both certified InterPlay leaders, and recently both attended the International Interplay Leaders Gathering in July (on Zoom) which gave us great ideas for lots of fun new ways to interact online!
As we progress in building this online community, we are also committed to regularly including some RET ‘play’ — Racial Equity and Transformation — into our time together. (Trust me, it really is possible, and even freeing, to bring ease and embodied story-telling into the topic of racial equity!)
We will meet in Rev. Lydia’s Zoom Room. Please email Rev. Julia you would like to attend or if you have any questions.

Journaling Workshop

Meets monthly, usually on the first Saturday of each month.

Journaling helps us to see and know ourselves. It is a way to expand on half-formed thoughts — bringing to the light parts of ourselves that reside only in our unconscious mind. Once acknowledged, we can start to work with those once hidden emotions and beliefs in a new way. In this workshop, we will talk about the value and the practice of journaling. We will have several short writing sessions (that won’t requiring sharing). Please bring a journal with blank pages and a pen.

Please pre-register for the Journaling Workshop classes by emailing

Sonya Bergeron leads the Journaling Workshop. She is a UUA Ministerial Candidate and currently participating in the chaplain residency program at Saint Anthony North Health Campus in Westminster, Colorado.

The scheduled 2021 Journaling Workshops are:

February 6th
March 13th
April 3rd
May 1st
June 5th 

HiP Core Team

We have a new group of leaders, they were originally formed to help construct and guide the “Braving Our Future” vision and mission planning process for the congregation. But in the same week, they came together, COVID-19 hit. So, Rev Julia and Jill Forney, Past President, asked this group to consider staying together to consult on getting us through this pandemic. They all offered a resounding, “yes!” They have considered many things in the course of their almost weekly meetings but especially staying connected, supporting stewardship, generating neighborhood groups, and keeping our community vibrant and healthy during this time. When we begin to transition back into the building (no earlier than June), they will again turn toward our future — but right now are a great support to the Board and Minister in sustaining ours now!

Please welcome these folks as members of the Core Team: Sue Neufeld, Tom Ward, John Atkinson, Julie Dufford, Greg Dufford, Jill Forney, Sam Dianda, Michelle Bull, Karen Clemmensen (as Shared Ministry Team rep), and Rev. Julia.
