It is June everyone! I don’t know about you, but this past spring seemed to go on for a very long time. Now we enter a timeof light, sunshine, greenand…yes, well, masks and uncertainty. I hope that despite all of the unknowns we are facing, you are able to take time to be outside with your pets, your family and your friends (AT A DISTANCE). If none of those things apply to you, go outside and tune into the bird songs or phone a friend or a loved one while sitting under a fully leafed-out tree.
This month we will have three special services. June 7th is Flower Communion. Be sure to send Lea a photo of yourselves with a flower! Rev. Rachael encouraged us to look for flowers we wouldn’t necessarily be able to pick if we were in person such as a tiny flower, a type that wilts the second you pick it. Or maybe a flower that is in your neighborhood or state park that you can fit into your selfie.
On the 14th we will Bridge our two seniors Rosie Dinsmore (left) and Casey Flueckiger (right). These two young women have gone through our RE program almost from the time that they were born. They both have been an integral part of our organization in many different ways and we will wish them well as they enter the adult world of college and jobs and yes, quite a bit of uncertainty.
And on the 21st we will be celebrating Summer Solstice and Father’s Day.
Please do not worry about our UUSA RE program. It will continue in one form or another and the RE Ministry, Jacy and I are all trying to figure out how to be available to all of you in the most effective way. Families, please look out for a survey in your emails. As we plan for the summer and next year, we will rely on your opinions and ideas so it is very important that we hear from as many of you as possible.
Take care everyone, Rebecca
