Message from Rev. Aileen
We are hunkered down. Many of us working from home. Our children are with us. We may soon be feeling cabin fever. But we are doing this because we love our church community and our wider community.
In this time, there may be loss. The virus is dangerous to vulnerable populations. And there are those for whom this period of shutting down may mean the loss of income or livelihood. This is a serious time. But we are creative people. Can we see the blessing in all this? This time for reflection. This time for slowing down. We can reach out to others even if we can't touch physically. We can check in with each other. We can donate to causes that need help, especially right now.
There is so much to fear right now. And for many of us, paradoxically, there is so much to be grateful for. Take time for moments of joy.
