Happy Vernal Equinox
We all know what comes after the next full moon, Easter! We’re getting there, even if it seems painstakingly slow this year. No sense in looking back. Coming up:
- the Spiritual Growth Retreat at Wesley Woods will be April 4th and 5th
- Keep Making Peace will be at University UMC in East Lansing
- National Assembly will be in Louisville, KY, April 24-27, and I heard a wild rumor that Hilary Clinton will be the keynote speaker. That would be worth attending.
This has been a long winter. I find myself very grateful for the UMW projects and activities that have pulled me through another bleak time, and the women I have worked with. I wish everyone could know them.
