The earth-shattering results of the Presidential election have put many of us on shaky ground as we enter the often-frenetic holiday season. We would like to add our voices to the chorus of support coming from within the UUMA leadership. In times like these we are reminded of the importance of our collegial connections, formed through our shared vocation and reinforced through trial by fire. The forces of hatred, dissension and division revealed and unleashed in the past year remind us that the saving message of our faith is more vitally needed than ever. May we all pay close attention to the well-being of our colleagues, may we reach out in our need for support, and may we be lavish in the love that we share not just with each other, but with all those who live in fear in the years ahead.
