Where do you turn?

Just when you think your heart can’t break anymore and things can’t get worse, they do.

People we count on to make us laugh are just as devastated as we are. Leadership is more like a battlefield. Unlike before, no one seems to say, “This, too, shall pass.” Phrases like ‘new normal’ can send a shiver down your spine.

Church is really about community, regardless of brand. Just singing a hymn on Sunday or watching children’s eyes light up with a story or heading out after work to help prepare a meal for others can elevate your spirits. The UU Fellowship is made up of people who are willing to cut the grass, paint, guide a discussion, lead a committee, serve on a committee—the list is endless.coffee-blurred

It’s frightening to consider a world without the thousands of communities that give us shelter from hatred and furnish us with a little laughter when there doesn’t seem much that’s funny.

  1. Being a skeptical-optimist, I tend to see the darkness – but also the light at the end of the tunnel.
    Perhaps the more frightening these times get, the more people will seek the light. Meanwhile, the Flame of our Community can be passed from candle to candle – and Out into the World.
