The holiday and new year season can be joyous and full of hope; and, it can be fraught with family tensions and personal losses. Some of us anticipate the familiar rituals with pleasure and others not so much. It can take work to cultivate new attitudes and activities to greet the season.
Reach out to new and old friends this season, especially to those who you sense might appreciate the contact. We all benefit from caring, compassion and connection as the outside light dims and cold keeps us inside.
Peace, Ann Woodbury for the Lay Ministers
