What do you want to accomplish – before the end of the church year?
What do you need in place – to begin the next year in good shape?
What can you let go – for now – to release some of the pressure?
Then, when we tap the resources that uplift and feed us, we give ourselves the burst we need to get through challenging times.
Whose company gives you energy?
Which music or artists lifts your spirits?
What locations or activities revitalize you?
Planning for renewal can make all the difference – and is a foundational element of growth. Take a little time, now, to nourish yourself … and enjoy this beautiful season.
In love & growth,Reverend Anne
