Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny. -Gandhi
Eastertide, and even though that has liturgical meaning, for many it means that we're moving close to the end of the church year, and with it, summer. I'm certainly looking forward to the slower season of warmth, and vacation plans. Yet the large crowds attending worship on Easter Sunday give us a reminder that there is something going on at UUFD that worth giving our time.
Many times we think about the importance of our programs that draw people. But I've also heard people say it's the people. I believe it's good to remember that each time someone has a positive interaction with another, we build relationship, we make habits, we share values.
At Eastertide, and throughout the year, let our thoughts, words, and actions create the community we love.
How might I practice building relationship?

May 12th we'll dedicate to our community some of our youngest children. If you would like your child to take part, contact Lisa, our
director of faith formation.
Next week I'll be taking a few days of study leave, then attending the UU Funding Program meeting in Boston.
