Worship Sharing Information 2020

If you did not receive an email with your worship sharing group or room number, please look your name up on this list, which is sorted by last name: Worship Sharing Groups 


We are looking forward to sharing worship with you over the next several days.

As you can imagine, making this happen in our “virtual” setting presents some unique challenges. But we want people to be able to stay with the same worship group all four days. So please read on to learn how to help make the process go as smoothly as we can.

Please make note of your room and group number on this list.

The links for worship sharing are in an email you should have received yesterday with the subject line “IMYM – Welcome and Day One Links.” If you do not see it, please check your spam and promo folders. If you still don’t see it, send an email to 2020imym@imym.org.

Please plan to arrive about 10 minutes before 9AM (8AM for our AZ/CA Friends) so that we can get you sorted into your group.

If you can, please sign into Zoom using the same email address that you are receiving this email with. That will help us do a little automated sorting. If you don’t know what that means, don’t worry about it! 

Once you are in the zoom room, please edit your name temporarily to your Group Letter plus your first and last name. [example: D George Fox]. This will greatly speed up the process of the zoom host putting you in the right group. Here’s instructions for how to do that. If you can’t make it work, have your group letter ready if they need it. (they will also have a list of all the people and groups).

Please be patient with our hosts as they sort everyone into multiple breakout rooms.

Below is some additional information about worship sharing, as well as some queries. Our worship sharing coordinator has asked someone from each group to act as leader, but if you find that your group does not have one, please choose one.

Worship Sharing Queries for IMYM 2020

Notes on Worship Sharing 2020

If you have questions, reach out to the Worship Sharing coordinator, Kay Bordwell: kbordwell4@gmail.com.

 

 

Sweet Home Monteverde Details

You can watch the movie Sweet Home Monteverde anytime today and join discussion at 8pm.
Click here to watch, and enter password: IMYM2020.

We will also have a “live” viewing starting at 7pm Saturday, followed by a Q&A at 8pm with the filmmakers, Robin Truesdale and Bill Adler. (see link in last night’s email).

 

 

 

For more background, read this article by Laura Melvin:

100 Years of Quiet Tenacity

Possible Q&A topics:

  1. Under what circumstances could you imagine leaving home for another country?
  1. What cultural and economic forces pushed the Quakers out of the US and what pulled them to Costa Rica?
  1. Do you think the Quakers would have been more effective advocates for peace if they had stayed in the US, or did they do the right thing in moving to Costa Rica?
  1. Once they settled in Monteverde, how did the Quakers’ attitudes about land use change over time?
  1. In what ways has Monteverde changed since the Quakers arrived in 1951? 
  1. More than 200,000 tourists visit Monteverde every year. What are the benefits to the community, and what are the costs?
  1. What values have the Quakers passed on to succeeding generations in Monteverde?
  1. What threats does Monteverde face today? And how are residents there confronting those threats?

Virtual IMYM Zoom Volunteer How-To Guide

Thank you for volunteering! 

Here are the basic instructions – things may look different on your screen. Several of the settings here help us abide with what we promised the community when they registered. Please contact Polly if you have questions, especially if you were not able to make a training session.

Multiple Days Before the Session

Polly will send you a link to your session, the Host Key that you can use to claim the Host spot, and the emails of the host, co-host and presenter(s).

Please connect with your presenter(s) ahead of time to strategize for the session. Here is a checklist.

15 minutes before the session

We recommend host, co-host and presenter all join the room 10-15 minutes early. Use the Host Key that Polly sends you to claim the host spot.

Then host should assign their co-host and make the presenter a co-host so they can share their screen. Turn on waiting room until everything is as you planned: Mute all, block chat, etc according to what you decided.

Chat Features

Then “Admit all” from the waiting room. (This shows up at the top of the participant box).

When people arrive

Ask everyone to add their Meeting and pronouns (“like a name tag”)

Ask people who phone in for their name, and change their name on their icon.

If presenter wants to share their screen, make them a CO-host, rather than opening up screen sharing to all.

Briefly share a slide about how the session will go. (See this template).

Setting up breakout rooms

Unless this is a worship sharing session, you will almost always want to select “automatically” to let Zoom place people randomly in the number of rooms you select.

Breakout Settings

Then check your settings:

Breakout Room Settings

Note that people in a breakout room can only chat with folks in same room. If you need to reach people, you can send a “broadcast” message from the breakout room menu.

Other Notes

  • If you mute all, please keep “allow participants to unmute themselves” checked (unless it is a case of disruption, where muting everyone for a few minutes is the best way to handle the situation).

  • If your presenter asked to lock the room after 10 minutes, do that here:

Lock Meeting

Or here (bottom of Participant box):

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you can see, these menus are also where you can make sure that participants can unmute themselves, and turn on and off the waiting room.

  • If your session is 90 minutes, remind the host to take a 5-10 minute break!

 

Virtual Event Presenter checklist

Host and co-hosts, please discuss these questions with presenter, then fill out the IMYM-Session-Info-for-Participants to share with participants in opening moments of the session.

Will you have a powerpoint, video or other visuals to share on screen or as a file to download? Are you comfortable sharing your screen, or would you like the host or co-host to share it on their screen? 

Do you want to have participants muted while you are giving the presentation?

Do you want attenders to be able to send chat messages to each other (default is yes)?

Do you want to do break-out groups? If so, how many people in each group?

Do you want to use the “poll” feature for voting and getting feedback?

Do you want to “lock the doors” at a certain time? (5-10 minutes in, stop anyone new from joining the meeting)

If it’s a 90 minute session, when will a 5 minute break happen?

Friends in the Arts Storytelling

IMYM20 FRIENDS IN THE ARTS

THINGS TO ENJOY RELATED TO “3 MINUTE TALES”

Dear Friends,

These pages are examples of exercises I use in my acting classes and are by no means required for anyone to take part in the “3 Minute Tales”

interest group.  I just think they are lots of fun to play around with and share.

Words for Emotional Fluency are worth looking over especially if one is preparing to tell a story or be generally emotionally eloquent.  They offer a way to enrich our vocabulary when speaking about feelings.  You may have words of your own to add to these lists.

Riddles and Tongue-twisters are fun ways to play with language and imagination.  If you want to check to see if you have guessed the correct answer to a riddle, you may email me at bisquitrackley@gmail.com. I will  respond ‘yes’ or provide a hint if ‘no’.  Use your wits to figure them out.  Try them out on others too.  Googling is cheating.

Why Storytelling? 

After humans get their basic food and shelter needs satisfied, one of the very next big needs is  “to be heard”.  People need to tell and to listen to stories because they carry not only our personal histories but are bearers of our culture as well.  They are lightweight, take up no space and can hold the whole world of joy, sorrow and excitement.  My goodness…….. there is a riddle right there!

What is weightless and takes up no space

Yet holds the whole world

Of joy, sorrow and excitement?

Come hear stories from our lives and maybe tell one of your own.

Lightly,   Caroline
