Mother Lily’s Message

Dear Friends, 

     I am looking forward to some sabbath time. Rest, relaxation, and reading-the three R's. Also, toss in some swimming and family and it makes for the perfect sabbath, as far as I am concerned. I hope that each of you can find the time to immerse yourselves in the things that you love and the things that refresh and restore your soul. It is so important to our mental, physical, and spiritual health. I urge you to do this. These past two years have taken their toll. They have altered so much of our lives and as we transition to a new time we need to make sure that we are taking good care of ourselves amid all this change. 
     I have some plans in the works for when I return from vacation. They involve reconnecting with parishioners in meaningful ways, as well as engaging with families and children in exciting, new ways. I am excited about these opportunities presenting themselves and I would love to hear your ideas on how we might do this. I can always use input to enhance some of the ideas rolling around in my head. It takes a village, right? I will see you all at the end of the month. Continue to have a good summer and don't forget to reach out to each other. We all like to hear from someone once in awhile!

Warmly, and with many blessings,
Mother Lily
