Yesterday was a full and wonderful day of reconnecting. It was so good to worship with you and participate in Church Chat. Our conversation was inspiring and hopeful and I’m grateful for the ways folks are sharing their experiences of this strange time in our lives.
Yesterday as our group was chatting, we began naming the ways in which this time has been an invitation into even deeper relationships and connection. While virtual connecting is strange and challenging, and not the first choice, the ways in which some folks have been engaging this time has allowed them to meet new people. It has even allowed some to get to know each other in a more profound way than if we were never forced to be apart and do things differently.
Some folks have found ways to connect in person and safely. Some folks have taken up postcard and letter writing or weekly phone or zoom calls.
