Finals

Hello everyone!

In case you haven’t noticed, a new liturgy isn’t coming this week, or for a couple of weeks. I have final papers to write which are taking up all my brain space. New liturgies will be back the middle of May, but in the meantime I’m lost in Higher Education Chaplaincy, mentoring Students of Color at Predominantly White Institutions, splitting students’ spirituality into practical steps towards meaning-making and worldview expansion, and whatever the fourth class will be (oh my goodness she hasn’t even told us yet!).

May your worship be blessed and your lives filled with love. I’ll see you on the flip side.
