Are You Whelmed?

I don’t know about you, but my social media feed this Wednesday was filled with regret. I mean – regrets from those who’d chosen to watch the debate! And, who, even 24 hours later, were left with a sense of anxiety and destabilization they couldn’t quite shake.

Whether you chose to watch the debate or not, you might still be finding yourself dealing with a general state of anxiety or hyper-vigilance, disorientation, or grief given the state of the world these days. It can leave us all under-resourced – aka a little testy – and not necesarily all that fun to be around.

This Sunday we’re offering to deal with this common state, in a service called “Whelmed.” It’s inspired by the funny fact that while you can be “underwhelmed,” or “overwhelmed,” being simply “whelmed” still implies being overcome by an emotional state…aka “overwhelmed!” There is no middle ground to claim, at least linguistically speaking. So if this is resonating for you, join us this Sunday! And invite a friend who is feeling “whelmed.” More info below.

Speaking of friends, there’s a lot going on in our church as we imagine the next iteration of how we do community, spiritual growth, and justice together. Check out the update from Rev. Sean in the short video below.

See you Sunday – with love,
Rev. Gretchen
