Minister's Message: HAPPY NEW YEAR!

My hopes for the coming year are that we all thrive, flourish, and grow. I wish that each of us can find places of comfort, niches where we feel safe. I wish that each of us will fell wanted, valued, and loved. These places might be physical, they might be in relationship with loved ones, they might be within our congregation. Taking care of one another takes intention and can be hard work, but it is an effort that the Beverly Unitarian Church community has been very good at managing.

At the moment, we are doing a déjà vu with the pandemic, and it is painful. I was so looking forward to sharing the beauty and glory of our Christmas Eve service with all of you in our sanctuary, and then joining in song and candlelight (and cocoa) afterwards outdoors. But, it was not to be, and we had to turn to a zoom-based service. The service itself felt lovely, but I missed you being there with us. Going virtual was the right thing to do, and most of us were able to enjoy the experience while eating cookies and treats so lovingly distributed by the elves of our castle. As I said, we are good at caring for one another, and we should all take pride in this caring nature.

I am confident that we can continue moving forward during the New Year, and we are starting to build programming ideas to create opportunities for continued engagement and stimulation. The first of these, that I will announce here, is a series of Monday evening discussions with the Minister. These will be zoom discussions that will start by addressing a specific topic that may be of interest or importance. I will offer these at 7:30 p.m. on the Mondays following Sundays when I lead worship so there will usually be two each month. On January 3, we will consider tension in belonging to world community while living with national sovereignty. January 17 is Martin Luther King Day, so we will relate our own memories of Dr. King, the Civil Rights movement, and racial justice in America.

I look forward to 2022, and will hold onto my optimism that the pandemic will recede and we can begin to live again, as we chose.


In faith,-Rev. Allen
