Hold On and Let Go

Congregations are places where joys and sorrows are shared, held, and let go of. Joy shared is joy expanded, and sorrow shared is a burden lifted. We’ll experience a ritual that will allow us to let go. We will also ponder what are the things in our life that we can hold on to, with the chance to write our “ballast” words on rocks. They provide balance. What are your touchstones? On this first Sunday of the new year, we will let go of what we need to release from 2023, and we will create touchstones of what words we will hold onto in 2024.
