“Holding On and Letting Go”
In the months after Christmas of 2019, my husband and I never got around to taking down our artificial Christmas tree. Then the pandemic began, and we still never got around to taking down the tree. Finally, I realized that I would need help getting the tree down, and reached out to my sister. At long last, we took down the tree and put it in storage. The saga of the Christmas tree has taught me that it is OK to let go of tasks that don’t absolutely have to be done. And when we need to accomplish something hard, it is good to reach out and ask for help.
During this time of social distancing, when in-person worship has been suspended, BBUUC will continue our weekly worship in video format that you can find on YouTube each Sunday morning at the “BBUUC Video” channel. Simply subscribe to the channel on YouTube, and watch our weekly worship services, modified for video viewing until we can resume gathering together for worship in our church sanctuary. The worship videos will remain on the site for viewing at your convenience. New services are posted at 6 A.M. on Sunday mornings.
We invite you to submit your Joys and Concerns via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday at noon of each week for inclusion in the upcoming Sunday’s worship service. Please note “J&C” in the subject line. For your privacy, we will share our Joys and Concerns using first names and last initials only.
