Joys and Sorrows

|I write this with a heavy saddened heart that our state of Michigan now has 33 cases of coronovirus confirmed. I ask of all of our congregation to be safe and as well as can be until we meet in safety and unconditional love again. May it be so! – Keith V.|
|Thank you for the opportunity to worship together (in spirit). During the “meeting and greeting” (and even now in the writing of this) my heart—filled with gratitude—spills up and over in tears of longing and connection. – Mary Elaine K.|
|I am grateful for technology that can keep us connected in these uncertain times. – Carol N.|
|Although I miss being together, hearing Reverend Neal’s calming voice and the piano music through my earbuds is a very nice experience. Thank you to all who participated in producing this worship service. – Dan D.|
|Thanks, Neal, for your leadership and spiritual guidance. It was lovely to hear your calming voice and ‘Comfort Me’ being played on the piano.
To all those I could not greet this morning, Good Morning. I hope we all can appreciate this opportunity to show our resilience by adapting to change with the best attitude we can muster. Love and peace. – Deb M.
|So many things on my mind. Mainly lighting a candle for my daughter who has returned to Colorado to be with her youngest son during this time. The whole family is worried and waiting to hear what my oldest grandson will be doing in near future. He’s hiking through New Zealand and often off the grid. Sometimes I think he’s safer being in NZ at this time. But of course we don’t know if and when he’ll come home – so we wait as so many others are doing. Heart felt blessings to all. I can’t even explain how important this community is to me. It is a blessing to have you all in my life. – Barbara S.|
|We want you all to know that we are thinking of everyone and sending our thoughts of love and peace to you, and our very best wishes/intent for all to stay well! We miss you and look forward to brighter days. – Aspen and Tim B-P|
|Randy and Lynn are happy to announce the birth of their grandson, Miles John Parsa, on Friday, January 20th at 2:28 in the morning in Boston, MA. Miles and his parents, Margaret and Nick are home now and doing well. – Randy and Lynn S.|
|I had a successful interview with the Ministerial Fellowship Committee (MFC) today and was welcomed into Preliminary Fellowship. Thank you UU Lansing for all of your support and encouragement! – Kristy S.|
