If you own a Mac you may have noticed that when you log in it doesn’t automatically connect to the UUA’s shared drives.  Fortunately, it’s not too hard to connect. First make sure you are connected to the UUA network.  You’ll need to be on Beacon Hill or use the UUA’s VPN .  Next, from the Finder use the “Go” menu and select “Connect to Server.”  For the server address type: smb://srv25/Scratch then press “Connect”.  If you already have a folder you can just add the folder name to the end of the server address as well.  You may have to put in your UUA username and password and press Connect again depending on how your Mac is configured.  The Finder should now open a new window and show the contents of the scratch drive or your folder.

Note: This method will work with any UUA share though you will need to know the “path” or location of the share. In this example that path would be: //srv25/Scratch but you could substitute in any other share that you have access to.

    It’s funny How different this solagn reads from my actual UU experience. I actually first joined UUism by taking a small group class at the local UU church called Working Toward Prayer . I came with lots and lots of doubts doubts that we’re keeping me from experiencing the fullness of prayer. And I came because I wanted to know if it was possible to both question AND pray. My very wise minister’s advice to the question: But how do you pray when you are filled with doubt? was very simple (and gentle). Just begin. And I did.I am just so glad she didn’t say When in prayer, doubt!!!! (To explain: There is a time to doubt and to question just not in prayer. Prayer is a time to experience, to connect, to be.)[TESTIFY! Thank you for saying this. -PB]I have to wonder though about the UUA solagn’s audience. I doubt my type (read:spiritual seekers) is their audience i just wouldn’t go looking for religion on the pages of Time magazine But if they’re not looking for spiritual seekers, then who do they want to attract? Maybe my husband (read: analytical philosopher type) would have liked the ad if he’d seen it back when we were looking but he wouldn’t have gone to church unless I dragged him through the door first! (His thinking: great ideas and philosophy but why do you need a church?) So, I guess what I’m trying to say is this it seems that those who might be intrigued by this ad are not the people who are really looking for a church. Those who are looking for a church are spiritual seekers seekers of community, connection, and hope. (And of course freedom and openness to search, but the point about UUism is that we do this IN communities of connection and hope!). Now I wonder does anyone actually know anyone whose come through our doors via national marketing campaign? Maybe such an individual could shed some light
