A gentle reminder

As we make our way back into our sanctuary, we’re bringing with us all of the feelings that’ve built up over the past year. I encourage you to sit with those feelings, and also realize that the people next to you may or may not be feeling similarly. So let’s be gentle with each other. If someone tries to greet you in a way that surprises you, please don’t be offended, but please do be assertive in communicating how you prefer to be greeted. Please also respect people’s privacy. Personality differences and various situations mean that different people are in very different places as we return to in-person activities.  – Rev. Mark Winters
