Quarantine 2020

Posts that mention challenges and opportunities during the 2020 Pandemic

  • Walking this morning, it was hard not to take in the splendidness of this day. The sky is a perfect fall blue, the air crisp but not bitter, and the leaves still fragrant and crunching. I’m grateful for moments and days like this that allow me to rest in a moment and image of gratitude. 

  • To say this last week has been overwhelming would feel like an understatement. Regardless of who you voted for, it’s been a roller coaster of a week. There are many who are still processing all of what it means. So, here’s a place to start.

  • For this week’s Monday Meditation, I offer these JOYS from YOU, St. Peter’s.

  • Guest blogger Stevi Cook, a long time member of St. Peter's UCC, talks about our mission work with the Washington UCC group in Cincinnati. And she explains why she is missing it so much this year.

Over 100 of you drove through our parking lot and safely wished her well on her journey of renewal and rest. It was glorious.
