The prospect of being able to house our library in more modern facilities including the Sankofa Archives is an important consideration in our move. It has been years since we have been able to house everyone in the same room at Meadville when we come together. Sankofa Archives is currently stored at MLTS and features the contributions of UUs of Color. A new facility would allow exhibits of historic pictures, documents and artifacts which we have been unable to display appropriately because of lack of space.)
May the Jewish community enjoy the building as much as Unitarian Universalists at Meadville Lombard Theological School have over the years! May we continue to hold a vision of theological education that is edgy and prophetic - producing ministers for times such as these!)

It is time to get back to work, sermon writing, course prep, and research. By the way, I am reading a book titled, Play: How it Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul by Stuart Brown, M.D.
ps I have just heard a weather announcement that more snow is predicted tonight!
Oh that I may become a big white polar bear that loves to frolic in the snow
or maybe a big black bear that hibernates all winter and comes out rejuvenated in the spring!
Perhaps I will just be who I am - someone that loves to view the winter from the warmth of indoors - who ventures out after the blizzard has ceased and the snow is shoveled , ready to explore - ready then to claim its beauty!
Q. How can you claim the good in that which seems less appealing?
Q. When was the last time you ventured past your comfort zone and stepped boldly into the unknown?
Blessings! Rev. Qiyamah
