It's been a while

June 22, 2020

It's been a while. A lot has happened.

First came the COVID pandemic. Then came the wrongful deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and others. What we’re facing, individually and collectively, is forcing us to look at our lives and our culture with new eyes.

"Love more" is our motto. It’s also a grounding principle. So when I get stuck, I return to the question: where is love here? And now? And again? What are the loving (and safe) actions during a pandemic? What feels like love to the people who are deeply affected by these events? How do we love the people who don’t agree or understand so we can bring them along? And can we get big enough to hold all of it and be clear about it without shaming, denying, collapsing?

For us, engaging with our community has been crucial—from attending city council meetings to showing up at peaceful protests to choosing local restaurants and businesses whenever possible. And also resting. 😊 We hope you are finding routes to action and well-being as well.
