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

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.
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.
