The fact that there was no Sisterly in 2020 tells us a lot about the year gone by. We will not get it back. It was a year of unprecedented loss across the world and for virtually all of us—loss of people, important experiences, work, perhaps income, travel, and a sense that we were ‘safe’ because of modern medicine. But we of Sisterly found a lot too–our regular Zoom calls, some in-person gatherings we appreciated all the more, a deeper sense of the importance of community, a sharper sense of the world and how it privileges some and oppresses others, a chance to reflect on what is really vital to us, what we don’t want to live without.
We welcome you – lesbian/queer/bi/trans and allies – as we share our life experiences and claim and commit our whole and holy selves. We welcome your wisdom and offer you the bounty of community.
This weekend is a time to come together to process the whole thing in a supportive setting. We will look ahead to what is sure to be a challenging year given the uncertainties of the Delta variant and its cousins. We will give thanks for our many and sundry blessings despite the world’s woes, and assess how we who have remarkable privilege can share ever more widely with those with whom we inhabit this earth.
