We've had plenty of cold and cloudy weather this past week. But even so, the robins and cardinals are acting like it is early summer and full of sunshine. The first daffodils are blooming in the flower patch in front of the parsonage. And I got a chance to see Ron Dickinson out on his walk. We stayed six feet apart, but enjoyed a face to face conversation.
In these times of disruption and change, each of us is finding both new joys and new challenges. And we are each different.
The apostle Paul writes that we should share each other's joys, without judgment or comment, and stand in solidarity with another's sufferings, again, without judgment or comment.
For all who have written, called, texted, Facebooked me, (is that a word?) thank you for sharing your joys and your humor... as well as the things you would like me to include in my prayers on your behalf.
We continue to grow closers and stronger in these days.
Practice curiosity, community, creativity
Treasure humor, hope, health
