Greetings, all. Rather than writing a blurb this week, I want to share a couple of links. One is to an excellent blog post by a fellow clergyperson/coach and friend, MaryAnn McKibben Dana. She encourages us to operate right now in low battery mode, tending to the essentials while giving ourselves grace for letting the rest go. (I think this is a good word for churches as well as individuals.) The second link is to a prayer I composed for congregations and families as we stand at the brink of this academic year, hardly recognizing school as we’ve previously known it.
Peace be with you all.
