It's good to remember that in crises, natural crises, human beings forget for awhile their ignorance, their biases, their prejudices. For a little while, neighbors help neighbors and strangers help strangers.
~ Maya Angelou
It seems like just yesterday we were enjoying the story of Wilbur, Charlotte and Templeton together in a Sunday service (pictured above). In their time of crisis, it took the teamwork and creativity of these unlikely neighbors to make a difference.

While keeping a physical distance is critical right now, social barriers are falling, because we need still need one another to survive.
What old barriers have moved or changed for you
in this time of crisis?
Is there a stranger you would like to get to know better?
Now is the time to do it!

Another Day in the Neighborhood
Rev. Virginia
Something is happening that seemed impossible a few weeks ago. Because we are forced to stay at home more, we are meeting our neighbors. Folks are helping each other and slowing down enough to check-in, even with some physical distance. While losing so much of what we used to believe was essential, something else has been found.
