This Sunday at 10:30am (in person, Zoom, YouTube) we consider our fourth principle: a free and responsible search for truth and meaning, fitting for this holiday season that carries such a weight of meaning. Sometimes this season can crumble under all the stories, myths, expectations and consumption. How can we hold the meaning – and sometimes lack of meaning – of the season? Where do we search for truth and meaning?
I encourage you to attend this Sunday – not just for the joy of being together – but to celebrate the winners of this year’s Mark DeWolfe Social Action Award! The Award for 2021 will be presented to two Co-Winners, Charmaine Ferworn and Pamela Smith-Loeters. Stay after service for coffee hour and to pick up your Festive Cheer Box! I am finding a sense of fellowship grows with each coffee hour – it is good to be together in person – and I am grateful Zoom provides connections for all to belong.

As we move ever closer to the holidays may you have what you need to make the days meaningful to you, whether that is people around you, beautiful music, festive feasts, or the peace of a winter walk. As my colleague Maureen Killoran wrote “So come, Christmas, most needed of seasons./ Come with the reminder that love does not depend on/ Perfection but on willingness to risk connection…”
May we make the connections that bring us joy.
