Will you breathe with me? How are you? Really? Take a moment if you can - take a breath and know you are loved.
So much has gone on in our country that it is dizzying. So if you feel afraid, disoriented, depressed, it is understandable and reasonable. Our community exists to be a place of love, support, and resources for our lives – our individual lives, our collective congregational life, and the wider community of life.
I know that many of you are in school, caring for families, working or worrying about work. I am here for you. Our various programs and groups are here for you. With all that you are doing I also want you to rest.
We are going into what will likely continue to be a chaotic time in our country. I do not think I need to recount the ways it has been, nor what we might expect. However, the instability of the president and the inability or unwillingness of this enablers in the administration and beyond demands that we do all we can to protect our neighbors, our communities and our democracy. I know many of you are working to get out the vote with locally, with UU the Vote, the Poor People’s Campaign. Let’s keep that up.
In the next week, I’ll be developing a plan for Election Day – offering times that I will open my zoom room for drop ins – to breathe, ground and center, pray, rest.
In the meantime, join us for worship this Sunday. We’ll be delving into the theme – “What Does it Mean to be a People of Deep Listening?” I want you to join us at 10am and let’s explore together.
