When the well’s dry, we know the worth of water.
Rev Katie’s Animas View
We’ve been relatively safe from the massive heat waves, western fires and eastern floods that have affected our country this summer. But I know that my feeling of safety is a fool’s errand. We are all connected.
Climate change is killing the Colorado River, and the tipping point is much closer than what we have been hearing. 10 percent of the water evaporates from simply baking in the hot sun.
This Sunday at UUFD, our congregation will participate in our annual water ceremony, bringing a bit of water to symbolize our returning home and the creation of community. I hope this focus will also remind us, as we touch and share these small amounts of water, how we might each take part in conserving water as well as engaging in actions to lessen the impacts of climate change, beginning in the west.
The Covenant Groups (our small group ministry) are deep sharing groups who meet regularly to explore topics of intimacy and ultimacy. One group has two open spots. Please contact me if you’re interested in joining.
This Sunday, we will celebrate ingathering by taking part in our water ceremony. Please bring a small amount of water to symbolize your travels or your respite. Bonnie Miller, Worship Associate and I will lead the service with Marilyn Garst as our musician. We gather both in person at our sanctuary or online.
Always in the Love,
The Rev. Katie Kandarian-Morris
