Pastor Jack’s Weekly Message (January 22, 2021)

Pastor Jack

Dear UUSP Community,

Dateline: Wednesday after the Inauguration. 
Reflection on the Biden-Harris memorial for the 400,000 Americans lost to COVID-19:  How good and right to have leaders with enough vision not to make spectacles of themselves.  Reflection on President Biden’s inauguration speech: How grand to hear the real issues for real people addressed with real honesty.  

Favorite Inaugural Truth Statement: We are a good people who have come far and still have far to go.  A Single Irony: Mind-streaming “Gonna lay down my sword and shield down by the riverside” with Inaugural military guard streaming alongside the Potomac.  Most Amazing Grace: On the Inaugural stage, former president Obama and current vice president Kamala Harris.  Equally Most Amazing Grace:  A new president – of the people, by the people, for the people.  

Favorite Encouragement Remembered from Protests I’ve Been In: No matter what, we can always work on building circles of decency.

Glad I’m in your circle,
Pastor Jack
