On this Thanksgiving weekend, I give thanks for the UUCD and this opportunity to be in relationship with you in a new way as your minister. I give thanks, too, for the spirit that weaves this community together, and for all the twists and turns that have been part of your 20 existence as a congregation, and for all the blessings and challenges yet to come. Giving thanks for what has been, is, and will be, let's explore our potential for growth of many kinds, the seeds of which are already part of our harvest.
In this season of harvest and thanksgiving, Rev. Lynn Harrison explores the theme of gratitude in story and song. As we grow as individuals and as communities, our gratitude may deepen in unexpected ways!
