There’s no question about it: 2020 has been a challenging year . . .
. . . Difficult for those of us who have had our lives changed, often dramatically
. . . Sad about all the changes in our society
. . . Worried about what’s to come.
But, despite all that peril, there’s promise, too.
We have all adapted, found new pleasures, strengthened our bonds with others in new ways, pursued new avenues of growth. There’s a brighter side to the dismal year just ending.
And so we move on, abandoning the perils of the year past and embracing the promise of the future.
Many of those things that affect how we live are headed upward, our spiritual life among them. That’s why we are emboldened to write about the role UUCL has played in our lives,
Facing the reality of last year’s upheavals, UUCL has been resilient, adapting what we do and how we do it to suit the new circumstances. Renewal comes with a new settled minister who is leading us in new ways, new growth, and with a new mission.
With that commitment to continue facing the new realities, being resilient, and continue renewing our church comes the need to ensure those “three R’s” will be realized. That’s where the sometimes avoided word, “money”, comes in.
Money is the currency of love and a conduit for commitment. We express our values through how we use our resources. Your commitment powers the future for our unique and vital liberal religious life at UUCL.
