After a year and a half of a global pandemic, we’ve all experienced our lives changing, shifting, even upending. We’ve also learned how the people in our communities have reacted. Steve and Rev. Meghann will share some of their own experiences and what they’ve learned, and invite you all to share your own learnings in our breakout rooms after the service.

What I’ve Learned During A Pandemic

“This virus is creating new ways for everyone to think of how to keep your family and friends safe. We are in uncharted territory and we will all learn together.”

Let us find within ourselves that quiet place as we turn our hearts and minds to caring for each other. May we be responsive and supportive, and may we honour that which is entrusted to us with love and compassion. This is our ministry of listening.

Hymn 1014 Answering the Call of Love
Our task this week as Unitarian Universalists:
To keep well – physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually;
To remain connected – with family, with friends and community;
To affirm our faith in the small but essential actions
Which make our world a better one;
To be true to love,
Till we meet again.
