WINFIELD UNITED CHURCH

NEWS & UPDATES

Hi everyone,

As I write this note to you all, I'm thinking about the week that has been.  And maybe today I find myself in the space of the Maybe... maybe you do too.

Maybe there will be answers that will comfort Nova Scotia families who are learning to live in a new reality without loved ones...

Maybe there will be rest and relief for overburdened healthcare workers...

Maybe there will be plans developing to see us come through this time of closure and distancing in a responsible manner...

Maybe random acts of kindness and compassion will be the rule of the day...

Maybe I will go for a long walk today...

God of the spaces-in-between, strengthen me and those who read this, that our longings for Maybes will become May Be... Amen

Peace to you all,

Joan

HUMOR

I named my dog "5 Miles" so I can tell people I walk 5 Miles every day.
 
Walk yourself out of your bad mood. Studies show that even a 10 MINUTE walk immediately BOOSTS brain chemistry to increase HAPPINESS.
