A little reminder...
 
Dear friends of #SacredSunday: even the most strenuous curators need a break here and then, and now it's our turn. The curators of Sacred Sunday are going on holiday, recharge their batteries, do some photographic and other work, or just relax.  

Since we will be guests of our own theme, there will be no new Thank You circle for at least two weeks. Stay tuned, have a great time, see you soon!

#SacredSunday  (+SacredSunday™ by +Charles Lupica) is curated by +Margaret Tompkins, +Robyn Morrison, +Sherrie von Sternberg+Manfred Berndtgen, and supported by +Chatchai Rombix, +Steve Barge, and +Justin Hill.

Happy Easter.

On behalf of +Manfred Berndtgen +Robyn Morrison +Margaret Tompkins and +Charles Lupica, +SacredSunday would like to wish you a happy and safe Easter.

Just a reminder that the team of +SacredSunday will be observing the holidays and spending time with family and friends. This week, please consider the theme as being un-curated. There won't be a "Thank You" circle this week. We all hope to see you next week.

+SacredSunday would like to share with you, this week's "thank you" circle.
 
────────────────────────────────
───   Sacred Sunday "thank you" circle  ───
───         12 February 2012          ───
────────────────────────────────

• Firstly, we wold like to thank everyone. You are awesome.
• There were nearly 160 images this week, again a very nice turn out.

Hopefully the circle includes everyone who contributed to Sacred Sunday this week, but experience says we missed some. Everyone is important to the success of the theme and we apologize if we missed you.

+Bill Wood +Charles Lupica +Manfred Berndtgen and +SacredSunday would like to thank you for joining us this week. See you next week.

• If you're interested in paintings, drawings, digital art, and other Fine Art Media please visit our friends at +Daily Fine Art Themes

• If you're interested in more photography themes please visit +Daily Photography Themes

Note: we want to be up front. Many of the people in this circle received a "notification" that we added them to our circles. This is a temporary circle and we can't keep everyone in the long term. We will keep people that have circled us as long as we can but, we may need to drop some of the people that added us.

Just a reminder that it's time again for Sacred Sunday. We ask that you add, "curated by +Bill Wood +Manfred Berndtgen and +Charles Lupica" to your posts if you would like us to interact with you.

This weekly photography theme encourages you to share with us and the G+ community what you hold sacred. People praying, temples and churches are great choices; but we also encourage you to share your personal sense of what is sacred, be it a mountain, a sunset, or a loaf of bread. More than anything, Sacred Sunday is about sharing.

We promote no religion over any other and invite you to share with us what you hold sacred.

• Firstly, we wold like to thank everyone.
• Secondly we would like to welcome everyone back from the holidays. We hope you're rested and made a lot of great images over the break.
• There was a very nice turnout again this Sunday with over 700 people participating. Hopefully the circles include everyone that contributed to Sacred Sunday this week, but experience says we missed some. The circle includes people that shared their images with us and all of the people that commented, plused or shared a post. Everyone is important to the success of the theme.

The circles are getting too large to manage so I think we'll try a few weeks where only people contributing images and people commenting on images will be included in future circles. We would like to include people plusing images but adding people that plus is the largest and slowest task. We hope you understand and encourage everyone interesting in being in the circle to comment or contribute an image.

+Charles Lupica +Manfred Berndtgen and +SacredSunday would like to thank you for joining us this week. See you next week.

+Manfred Berndtgen did most of the work on the circles this week so a heart-felt thanks goes out to him as my co-curator

We at Sacred Sunday would like once again to share our circle of fidelity; that is, our circle of people who take part in the theme on a regular basis.

We also want to mention that +Sherrie von Sternberg is this week's guest curator.

We would like to offer in complex tip on how to best view the theme.
• add this circle
• go to your home page
• in the top tool-bar, inline with the home icon, select the "more" drop-down box
• click on the Sacred Sunday circle.
• in the search box at the top of the screen enter, #sacredSunday
• on the top line next to #SacredSunday click on the drop-down box (everything)
• select "from your circles"

Everything you see in stream will be posts tagged #sacredSunday and will be from the people of Sacred Sunday "supporters".

Don't forget to do a straight search on #sacredSunday so you don't miss people not in the circle. But, this tip will allow you to find the most active people first. We also hope that this will help to encourage people to participate at least 50% of the time.

This weekly photography theme encourages you to share with us and with the G+ community what you hold sacred; people praying, temples, and churches are great choices. We also want to encourage you to post images that share your personal sense of what is sacred, be it a mountain, sunset, or loaf of bread. More than anything, Sacred Sunday is about sharing.

This is a special edition of the Sacred Sunday circle. The people included in this circle are people that have plused, commented on, or posted images to Sacred Sunday more than 4 times in the last 2 months. Many of the people here have participated in every Sacred Sunday over that period of time. Bravo and thank you for helping to make Sacred Sunday a success*

We think it's a nice idea to share a circle of "fidelity" and we will update this circle again in May. We're pretty sure that we found all of the people that have participated on a regular basis. If you think we missed you, we're sorry. Please leave a comment and we'll consider an update.

Notes:
* Sacred Sunday will be on a relaxed holiday schedule Sunday 08 April*
There will be no circle for Sunday 08 April but we will visit when time permits

On behalf of +SacredSunday +Charles Lupica +Manfred Berndtgen +Robyn Morrison +Margaret Tompkins, we thank you. See you in two weeks.

*If we missed you we're sorry. *

• We would like to thank everyone.
• There were over 150 images this week making this one of the best weeks so far

• +Bill Wood has left the team (and G+). We are sad to see him leave but we understand his reasons. We wish him all the best and want to thank him for all the hard work he put it to the theme and the wonderful images he contributed.

• We realize that naming all of the curators can get to be a bit much so we ask you to name at least one of us and the page. Certainly, we all like to receive the notice so we hope you'll mention us all but we'll understand if you don't.

Hopefully the circle includes everyone that contributed to Sacred Sunday this week, but experience says we missed some. Everyone is important to the success of the theme and we apologize if we missed you.

+Charles Lupica , +Manfred Berndtgen , +Robyn Morrison , +Margaret Tompkins , and +SacredSunday would like to thank you for joining us this week. See you next week.

*If we missed you we're sorry. *

Note: we want to be up front. Many of the people in this circle received a "notification" that we added them to our circles. This is a temporary circle and we can't keep everyone in the long term.

Our friend and co-curator, +Bill Wood is not feeling well today. We wish him a speedy recovery and expect that he'll be back with us next week. In the short time Bill has been with the theme, he has become our friend and the friend of many of the people that share with us each week.

As usual, we will try to visit all posts that have been addressed to us, the curators. Sometimes that means not responding until Monday or Tuesday. Have a great Sunday and I hope it's warmer where you are than it is here in Switzerland.

An early reminder that tomorrow is #SacredSunday (photography theme)

I'm off to play in the snow and will return tomorrow evening so I'm sending out the weekly announcement a touch early. I'll catch up with everyone when I get back.

+SacredSunday +Charles Lupica and +Manfred Berndtgen would like to remind you that tomorrow is Sacred Sunday.

Sacred Sunday is about sharing. We're a community and we hope that you will share your images and comments in with us and the community. Also, "*+*" are important to everyone so please plus the images you like even if you commented.

We'll do a "thank you" circle this week that will include people that post to the theme and people that post comments. Tabulating the pluses and shares just takes too much time so they won't be included in the circles.

Thank you for taking part in Sacred Sunday
+Charles Lupica

Sharing spirituality, contemplation, reflection and mediation through photography
Introduction
It is not known for sure but it is my opinion that the new Sacred Sunday (TM) community will completely replace the Sacred Sunday(TM) hashtag based photography theme.  We will keep the page as a way to share images and to provide information to the community but we urge you to join the new community.




Please join us in our new community at:

Henceforth, #SacredSunday™ ,#sacredsunday , #Sacredsunday , #sacredSunday, and  #SacredSunday; as established through use are  trademarks of Charles Lupica.

This is a neat trick, copy and paste this text block into your post and G+ will convert it to linked mentions. Pretty cool huh ? No need to type all the names if you use this trick. (Charles)

Sacred Sunday was founded by Charles Lupica and is (usually) curated by regular curators Manfred BerndtgenRobyn MorrisonChatchai Rombix, Justin Hill, Steve BargeCarolyn St.Charles, and Sherrie von Sternberg (list can vary). If you would like to join us and become a temporary or regular curator, please contact one of the team. 

Other great curators supporting this theme were Charles Lupica, Sumit Sen, Bill Wood, Margaret Tompkins.

This weekly photography theme encourages you to share with us and with the G+ community what you hold sacred; people praying, temples, and churches are great choices.  We also want to encourage you to post images that share your personal sense of what is sacred, be it a mountain, sunset, or loaf of bread.  More than anything, Sacred Sunday is about sharing. 

We promote no religion over any other and invite you to share with us what you hold sacred.
