UUCM member Rev. Karyn Packard leads us to consider:
However and whenever we look at moving ahead from our COVID isolation, what is required to effectively reconnect: spiritually, physically and as a dynamic community?
In our summer series of “Voices Near and Far,” Beth Karow fills in for Worship Associate Gail Johnson Vaughan as we receive the wonderfully “near” spirit and wisdom of Rev. Karyn. Her sermon begins at 32:50.
