Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today,A Prayer in Spring by Robert Frost
and give us not to think so far away
as the uncertain harvest; keep us here
all simply in the springing of the year.
Living in the present is harder, but even more vital, in a time of fear and uncertainty about the future, even about tomorrow. Lisa deGruyter will lead the service.
We are forgoing meeting in person during the coronavirus epidemic. We share music, readings, and hymns, on our usual presentation slides, have a story and a talk, and share joys and sorrows, as well as a virtual “coffee hour” discussion, starting at 10:30, with the service at 11. If you prefer not to be seen, video is optional. If you would like to participate, please email email@example.com for details and a link, or for help with using Skype.
If you are a regular attendee, we have added you to our Google Group if we had an email address. If you have not gotten a group email already, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can add you to the group, which we will be using for staying in touch with each other during this time. Public announcements will continue to be posted here on the website and on our Facebook page and Twitter account, as usual.
