The word “liminal” is used to describe a threshold between one thing and another. On my very first Sunday with you we found Jacob in the liminal space of the Jabbok River—unable to go back and afraid to go forward. We are in a liminal time in our church, nation, and world right now. There is no way to go back and we aren’t yet sure what going forward looks like.

As I recover from my second cataract surgery, Rev. Heather Janules of the Winchester Unitarian Society will be filling in for me (virtually) on Sunday to share some thoughts on liminal time and space that she shared with her congregation this past summer.
