I attended the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association in Columbus, Ohio, from June 21 to 27. My head is still spinning from a week full of business meetings, chats with friends new and old, and fabulous music and worship. Here is a sample: poet/musician's "god is no noun", the meditation from the Sunday morning worship service. And a nice Storified look at the week on social media. These are the kinds of experiences that convinced me to get a UU flaming chalice tattoo on my 60th birthday.
I got up on Friday morning to a husband in pain, and spent most of the next 14 hours in the emergency room with him. Life is what happens when you are making other plans, right? John Lennon was so astute. Somehow, between trips to the hospital as they moved him from ER to observation to a regular room, I finished the sermon, found a replacement pianist for my musical partner, and delivered the worship service. Whoosh!
