• Hope everyone had a safe and satisfying Thanksgiving, given the circumstances and the reality of world we live in. One of the things I was most grateful about last week, was the meals we delivered to some members of our Broadway family. And that was possible because Jon Fallon cooked the best meal, Satia Orange coordinated everything, and Charolette and Nicole contributed to make the meal festive. It was appreciated by all, so we looked for a way to do something for the whole community during Advent, and a suggestion was to have an outside mitten tree. What a great idea! 


  • Friends, no one had imagined we would be having the kind of Thanksgiving we will have this year! And yet -- here we are!  So, I was looking for a message that would help us keep things in perspective, for the reality is that we will not be with family and friends as we are used to.


  • I was in the kitchen when my phone suddenly started making the Emergency Alert sound! It startled me because: 1) I didn’t have the TV on and I had only experienced that sound on TV, and 2) I didn’t think the weather was going to be bad at all, so then why the alarm? Just as I was thinking, the announcement began -- telling us that we needed to stay at home and only go out if necessary! Even though I know both our Governor and the Mayor have been telling us this was coming, and even though our Bishop has also asked churches to stop all in-person worship, my heart did miss a beat at the announcement! I am sure I am not alone.
