One of the small silver linings of this shutdown is that I have found time to look back to the past – rereading favourite books and rewatching familiar tv shows – as well as looking at old photos – how quickly my son grew up! This looking back reminds me of better days and reminds me that I have gotten through difficult times before. This Sunday we will look back and celebrate the life of the Rev. Mark Mosher de Wolfe, UCM’s minister during the 1980s. Mark was the first openly gay Unitarian Universalist minister in Canada and was known for his advocacy of human rights. He died too soon, in the AIDs epidemic, and we honour his legacy each year through the Mark de Wolfe Social Action Award. We will hear his words and sing his hymn.
Fittingly for this week’s Sunday topic, some of you may have received a letter from yourself this past week! We wrote these letters last fall during a Sunday service on legacy. What kind of ancestor do you want to be? What do you hope your legacy will be? This shutdown can be an opportunity to reflect on what your legacy might be.
