Trick or treat? Who would have thought that at Hallowe’en we would still have to adapt to the challenges COVID-19 presents? But here we are, changing and adapting together. This Saturday between 3:00 and 4:30 pm you are invited to the church for an All Ages Hallowe’en Drive Through. (I’ll be there dressed up and handing out candy with Norah; see below for more details.)
We are also trying something NEW this Sunday before church – Virtual Coffee Hour from 9:30 to 10:15 am on Zoom. Bring your coffee or tea and we’ll create a new community connection from home. I will be hosting and, since it will be All-Saints day, you are invited to bring a story or quote from someone you admire who has passed away, someone you consider a saint.
While most of us remain close to home, Monarch butterflies are headed to Mexico for their yearly migration. The butterfly is a symbol of survival through change, beauty and resurrection. Because we need to keep reaching for and sharing the joy for which we have been created, I want to share with you the following poem. I have read it more than 25 times this week. It calls to me to live fully into each moment, each day, these changes, this season.
Christ’s Peace and deep Grace,
