Spring and Summer are growing seasons. We can see that growth everywhere, in our gardens outside, in the trees around us, in crowds at outdoor events!
We can even see all that growth in our church. When I started at HUUC almost two years ago, we averaged about 4 kids in weekly RE programs. During the month of April, we had TRIPLE the number of kids EVERY Sunday! Wow – that is growth!
I have also been experiencing a bit of personal and familial growth. Emily and I are so excited to share that we are actually expecting our SECOND CHILD, due in late August/early September. As of writing this article, I am 23 weeks pregnant and excited for the growth that awaits over the summer and early Fall.
Expecting while overseeing an RE program is a special treat because the wild possibilities in my personal life are supremely exciting and inspire such creativity. Rev. Bill and I, along with the RE committee and a host of co-collaborators are spinning up plans for the Fall while I am on parental leave. It will be a time full of connection, fun, and deepening ties both for my family and for all of our young people in the congregation. I am looking forward to planning and creating and wondering with all you as we anticipate another new addition to our broader HUUC community!
