Dear UU Church of the Brazos Valley,
So much in our lives right now—the ongoing pandemic, attacks on our democracy and rights, and the increasingly frequent impacts of climate change—seeks to isolate us, to wear us out and wear us down. Turning toward a concrete practice of gratitude helps us resist the ways in which we are being called to isolation and division, because gratitude actually turns us toward each other. Gratitude reminds us of our interdependence, which is so critically and spiritually needed in our world these days. In this newsletter, I offer some resources for connecting with our gratitude and our interdependence.
P.S. Don’t miss the UUA Congregational Life online conference December 11 & 12. Register below for “Compass: Navigating the Paths of Liberation Together.”
