Happy Holidays, Central East Region!

Our picture sums it up, doesn’t it? We made it to a working retreat together this fall and we were masked and socially distanced and happy to be together and it was weird to be together and we had fun and got tired and we took our picture and, what the heck, threw our team mascot in for good measure. 2021 had so much to grieve, so much to celebrate, so much to work on, so much to learn. What’s next for any of us? Who knows? We’ll be with you in 2022 to do it all some more. We do know that our connections with each other make everything possible and better.

We hope for joy, peace, love and at least a little bit of fun for you over the next few weeks. The UUA will be closed from December 18 to January 3 so we can find some of the same. We’ll see you in the new year.

Our blog will be taking a break on December 27th but we'll be back January 3!
