Beauty in December
The weeks leading up to Christmas can be very taxing and daunting to a member of the clergy (even if Christmas isn't actually their holiday.)
Something happened this week that has really restored my faith in humanity and thus my energy, and I want to share it.
The congregation I serve is the closest UU congregation to the Cleveland Clinic, and sometimes I get calls from colleagues who have congregants going to the Clinic. They ask me to stop by and check-in, offer some support, or something similar. I am happy to do this.
I got an email from a lay-person saying a UU friend of hers was coming to the Clinic for 3 days of tests, and could we help out this friend.
I sent out a call to action to two churches and got a dozen responses! Every appointment, every commute, every meal: covered!!!!
People, you can sometimes break my heart. And then other times you show your true capacity and beauty.
