Minister's Message

After two weeks of sick leave with viral pneumonia, I am glad to be recovered enough to be back at work. Thanks to all of you who sent such caring messages while I was sick, and to all of you for your patience while I was off work. I believe I have now answered all of the accumulated emails—if I somehow missed yours, please either resend it or text or call me!

This month, we will be exploring spiritual practices: why we need them, how they can help us right now in the midst of a global pandemic, and exploring several specific spiritual practices together, including those of lament and of sabbath-keeping.

I know some of you already have spiritual practices you are devoted to; some of you have aspirations about practices but haven’t yet built them into your lives in a consistent way; and some of you are searching for a spiritual practice that feels right to you. My hope is that by the end of this month, wherever you are in that spectrum, you will have found or deepened one or more practices that nourish your soul. We all need that, now more than ever, as we live in an increasingly unsettling, soul-troubling world.

In gratitude,
Rev. Diana
