There is certainly desolation present in the zeitgeist of the human and earth community, more than any one of us should face alone. Community helps! In addition to the benefits, a difficult thing about sabbatical was being separated from the UUFC community. I will speak a bit about sabbatical, how it played out during the time of COVID, and how I hope it may inform my continuing ministry with you. Worship Leader – Rev. Bryan Plude, Worship Associate – Susan Bachlor, Music – Mary Collins and Nick Arteaga, Zoom Host – Bob Crowe.
