Meet Our Story Corner Friends!

Sunshine is a very rare bird in amidst our Story Corner friends! He is very boisterous and joyful and has beautiful lessons to teach us about communicating kindly and listening well when we speak in different ways. You see, Sunshine communicates in birdsong…well, whistles, really, but he has a gorgeous voice! We learned his name is Sunshine by listening very, VERY carefully as he whistled “You Are My Sunshine”.  Sadly, his gorgeous voice doesn’t translate very well over computer audio, so he is very excited for the day he can meet everyone in person! Sunshine’s unique communication style helps teach lessons on accessibility, respect, and active listening skills. All very important in our diverse and pluralistic world!

I have recently noticed that sound tends to pick up more clearly in a recording rather than live viewing, so Sunshine may very well surprise us with an appearance on YouTube or during a Sunday Service Story for All Ages! However, being a Robin, it’s likely this surprise appearance will happen come spring! He is really looking forward to meeting everyone!

Blessed be,

Ilara Stefaniuk-Gaudet, Director of Religious Education
