As we write, there is news of earthquakes and volcanoes, as well as other types of upheaval locally and abroad. A UU congregation in Indiana had hate banners left on their property this weekend. Be gentle with one another. The more trouble in the world, the more will be asked of us. We are reminded of the reading in the Singing the Living Tradition hymnal by the Rev. Wayne Arnason, one of our co-ministry mentors-
‘Take courage friends.
The way is often hard, the path is never clear,
and the stakes are very high.
For deep down, there is another truth:
you are not alone.’
Reach out to one another. Meet struggle with patience. Meet hatred and ignorance with love. Our world just might depend upon it.
Rev. Wendy and Rev. Lynn
