Happy New Year to one and all! 2017 was an eventful year, bringing so many experiences and emotions to each of you in your own lives, to Accotink UU Church, and to our world. Now, even before we have had time to absorb it all, the New Year is upon us, and 2018 calls to us.
May this year be one that we approach with intentionality, as Abraham Lincoln said, that we may be “touched by the better angels of our nature.” Our worship themes for the winter are Justice and Love. I will be leading a small group to invite us into deeper consideration of what those qualities mean in our lives and our church. We will also be asked to join in the process discerning Accotink’s covenant, what we promise to one another. And the Transition Team and I will continue to ask people, “What makes you come alive? What do you love?” Think about these things, and let your answers guide your pathway into this New Year!
