November Newsletter | A Time of Reflection During a Season of Gratitude

Greetings Deaconess Community,

Deaconess Community,

The spirit of gratitude invites us to be grateful in both joyous and challenging seasons. As a community, we continue to care for one another and those around us even in this moment of global crises and remain hopeful that the seeds we are planting with our hands, hearts, and minds will yield a liberated reality for generations to come.

In these times especially, the path to liberation within the next seven generations can seem daunting, but as we discovered during several community meetings we hosted over the last four months, our community is excitedly ready to partner with us to bring this audacious vision to life. For that, we are grateful and filled with joy.

As the year winds down and we are busying about, in this season, may you find time to rest and reflect on that which brings you joy.

In service to the mission,

Rev. Bethany Johnson-Javois
President & CEO
Deaconess Foundation
