RE News: Sun Dec 31

Lifespan Religious Education

Nora will sometimes pause during the day to name people she loves. They could be from one side of the family or both, and include schoolmates, family friends, and people from the congregation. It is often a reminder of all the people who are involved in her life and have affected her in some way. I have been realizing how much her gratitude practice has been uplifting for me. It is a joy to hear her name the people she is feeling connected to and a reminder of how important that is for all of us. I am grateful for my connection with each of you and look forward to seeing you in the New Year. When it arrives, may the names of those you love and appreciate be flowing from you lips and ringing in your ears.

Please see the following four (4) announcements:

1) This Sun Dec 31

What lessons do they offer to be lived into the future?
