I Grieve for Our Country

I grieve for our country where we could rush to believe that only others have responsibility for today. We must come together for the sake of each other.
I grieve for those who will die and those will lose loved ones in the next shooting.
And the next.
And the next.
And the next.
And the next.
Until we decide they must stop.
Until we act.
I grieve for a country and for a planet where this violence is all too common, all too familiar, all too tragic.

-The Rev. Keith Kron

Dear Ones,

Rev Katie Kandarian-Morris

We send deep condolences to the entire community of Boulder, Colorado, after Monday’s all too sadly familiar mass shooting. As you might imagine, our congregation there is in shock and grieving. My colleague in Boulder is once someone for whom I served as mentor in his early years in ministry so I feel connected. I think Colorado as a whole is awash in cumulative trauma from all the shootings over the years. I know that for me, this one hit extra hard, bringing me back to days remembered when these things did not happen weekly.

If you are especially struggling this week, let me know so we can find a time to talk.

UUFD Kids’ Play

Won’t you join us on Saturday evening at 6:30pm for the play our UUFD children have created? It’ll be fun for your whole family, and you can make it into a dinner theatre. 

Here’s where you get tickets and logon. See you Saturday night!

Come Sunday

This Sunday is the Christian holiday of Palm Sunday, moving into the week of the Jewish Passover. Even if you’ve had your shots, you still may be feeling like all you can do is keep on moving forward. We’ll need to see each other, if only online.

Join us this Sunday at 10amLogon here.

Always in the Love,

The Rev. Katie Kandarian-Morris
