Many of us are relying on our daily patterns and routines to give us steadiness and comfort in these times of change. Some of us struggle with a lack of routine, some of us with a lack of needed change. At times we are pushed to our limits of longing for both connection and freedom. As we celebrate the return of the winter holidays of light in darkness in our weekly worship, let us continue to return to the peace of our church patterns—to our community—for support and connection with one another.
