Action of the Week!
The Action this Week is -- Rejuvenate.
There is plenty to do. There always is. Justice is needed every day of the week, 24 hours a day. If suffering and inequity were a smell -- you could sniff it in the air any time of the day or night!
Our bodies don't run on machine time. No, as organic, creatures we need downtime. We need quiet. We need love and community. We need sleep!
Christmas and New Years stand like two poles of a hammock with one week of delicious time between them. One week that even our busy 'doing' culture enshrines as down time. The kids are out of school. Even the Earth gets into the act, and in the Northern Hemisphere, it is dark, and cold. In Portland this week, it's been hard to leave the house. Icy roads invite you to spend a quiet evening at home.
If you can take this time to rejuvenate, do so. Enjoy yourself. The New Year will turn and the world will get back to business. You can count on it! See you next week.
In Love and Faith,
Rev. Katie Larsell
PS There are only a few more days to make a matching gift to Oregon Unitarian Universalist Voices for Justice. I know you want to! The UU Funding Program will not match after January 1. So -- give now. The button is on the right. Or go to our web page and give there!
