Towards the end of winter, it is difficult to remember that the weariness of the cold and darkness will soon end. I am always pleasantly surprised that seemingly out of nowhere, a wellspring of hope and energy bubbles up in the spring. As with the seasons, so with our community, I know that we will all soon find ourselves excited about the new possibilities arising in the future for this community. It has been a challenging winter for many of us, however, I appreciate that so many of you have leaned into the challenge and are helping to plant the seeds of hope that will soon spring.
The next few years of religious education at Woodinville UU Church will likely see many changes. No professional religious educator administers a program in the same way, even when not trying, change inevitably happens. The program has seen many shifts and changes over the last two years, it is now poised for the next phase of its development. May you find the inspiration, flexibility, and love to welcome new staff and exciting additions to the religious education program at WUUC.
The work of these past two years has been exhilarating, frustrating, fun, and tedious at times. Please thank your REALL team and Transformation and Action ministry lead for their hard work. Many of the leadership in religious education will need a break and some time to be ministered to, that will require others to step up and keep the RE program running. Pam Green and the REALL team welcomes any new volunteers willing to step into leadership as we enter a new phase of the life of religious education at WUUC. Please email them here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
May the Spring bring this church steadiness, creativity, and love.
Warmly and Fondly,
Rev. Jaelynn Scott
