You have the power

Posted by Kenny Lee on Tuesday, June 15, 2021,

I don’t know about you, but I need a different summer season than last year’s. We all tried to stay safe and limit our contact with others hoping to minimize any potential exposure. In the process, it quickly became apparent that human beings are also social beings. Interpersonal relationships are essential to our emotional equilibrium and core humanity.

All of the stay-at-home instructions and the laundry list of best practices served to ratchet up our collective caution. At its height...

Revive, refresh, renew

Posted by Kenny Lee on Wednesday, June 9, 2021,

Annual Conference 2021 is in the books. The first-ever hybrid format that anyone has attempted to date. My hats off to our conference staff for their fantastic ability to manage and merge all of the moving pieces of technology required to host the event. This needed a ground-breaking level of expertise to pull off. The first afternoon’s meeting had to be rescheduled due to an unforeseen glitch in the technology.

While the conference staff, organizers, volunteers, and the Bishop tried to pr...

When the tree was trimmed last year, a good deal of canopy got removed, allowing sun on previously bare places. In addition, every year, I fertilize the backyard and try to relocate the trampoline often enough to pre...

Entering into change

Posted by Kenny Lee on Friday, May 7, 2021,
Since the governor lifted the mask mandate in March, we have continued to monitor cases statewide. Thankfully, with more people receiving the vaccine, our most vulnerable members are now in a much better position. Our Reopening Team and Trustees Committee met last week and unanimously voted to allow attendees to make personal decisions regarding the wearing of masks. Beginning Sunday, May 9 masks are discretionary. We support your right to make your own decisions. Please remember that this re...
