I'm very excited. You could feel the excitement in the congregation, which voted unanimously to call the minister, which is pretty rare. (Unitarian Universalists are congregationalist in polity and thus elect, or call, their own minister, each congregation in charge of its own administration.)
It was great to be back at church, good to see friends. Lots of people gave me gentle embraces, asked after all of us. Beloved community. Just what we wanted and needed from church, what we hope we give in return.
