Thank you so much for the opportunity to take a vacation last week. I didn’t realize how much I needed to get out into the sunlight and to be away, carefully and cautiously, with friends of many years. I feel refreshed, renewed and restored in a way that I hadn’t realized I needed, and a new sense of optimism for what our future can bring. In these uncertain times, it is so important that we are grounded with people that we love, even from a distance.
I want to urge you to join us this week for worship with our guest preacher Rev. Tessie Mandeville. She is chaplain and a Unitarian minister, and our history together goes way back to when I saw her exercise her healing ministry at the church on Eureka Street in San Francisco. Her partner Lisa will be joining us too; they will sing together for us. Be prepared for some healing, and bring your needs for healing prayers to church. When we sing “It is well with my soul” at the end of the service, you will feel it.
Be there – I will.
Rev. Jim Mitulski
