4 Ways To Stay Connected This Holiday Season


2020 continues to be a challenging year as we move into the Holiday Season.

With new restrictions on gatherings being imposed throughout the country, how do we stay connected with our loved ones?  I offer four simple ways to build ourselves up and be supportive of one another, while staying safe...


So many of us have experienced loss this year in the wake of the pandemic - relationships, jobs, loved ones, and so much more.  Now is the time to remember that we are loved, that we are all connected.  Prayer is our primary spiritual tool for peace and transformation, for it "reaches across the miles."  As we communicate with the Divine, we recognize and celebrate our Oneness with our loved ones, blessing them for who they are, and for all that they do.


Build upon your existing connections.  Host a Zoom party for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and/or New Year's Eve!  Watch a documentary with a group through one of the popular streaming services and talk about it afterwards.  Phone a friend or family member you haven't reached out to in a while.  All of these activities reinforce the foundation of your relationships and reminds us that we are loved.


Take opportunities to create!  Share your talents - and your food - in new ways this Thanksgiving.  Take pictures and video of your meal and share them via social media, e-mail, a Zoom / Skype party as mentioned above, or other means.  


This Holiday Season, know that you are never alone.  In this time of physical distancing and isolation, it is a great comfort to know that there is a Presence - the Presence of pure Love - that is guiding, supporting, and nourishing us.  You can connect with your spiritual community on Sundays, at 11:00 a.m.  Our livestreamed service is available through any desktop computer, SmartTV, or mobile device (iPhone/iPad/Android/Galaxy/Surface), or in person, in our safe, socially-distanced space.  Wherever you are is a sacred space, a holy place, for God Is there with you!  Remember this, and know that we shall overcome these challenges: together, as one.

Abundant Blessings,
