Hello First U Family-
Today’s message comes to us compliments of Rev. Linda Barnes, minister of Starr King UU Fellowship of Plymouth, NH. Here she offers thoughtful and relevant blessings to those experiencing the challenges of being homebound in various capacities.
When we are knee-deep in the challenges rife with life in lockdown, we don’t readily think about the gift inherent in these limiting circumstances. However, she rightly identifies the activity (inactivity?) of staying home as a gift. As we prepare to hear more about our 1st Principle this coming Sunday, the wisdom in her observation more easily comes into focus…all people are worthy of health and wellness, and we attempt to give others the gift of wellness by being at home.
All well and good. AND easier said than done. Thus Rev. Barnes offers her blessings to all who are writing their own stories of ‘All Quiet – But Not Necessarily Easy- on the Home Front.’
I’m thankful that I share our First U home with you.
