It has been quite a busy time, trying to come back from the Covid-19 pandemic. I realize that it’s not over, but we are approaching a “new normal”. I’m proud of what First Church Unitarian has been able to accomplish, offering most things in multiplatform or “hybrid” mode. But everything has changed; not just for FCU, but for everyone. Time just keeps marching along too, of course. (Whatever “time” is.) It’s a good time to be nimble and prepared to try new things. We are doing our best. I do enjoy the challenge, mostly. But I still miss some things about pre-pandemic times. I still feel like fewer events happen in-person now, and I miss many of the gatherings. No denying that there are benefits, including more online options and less driving and less pollution. I try to keep an open mind.
