Week three: staying connected during social distance

Dear Community,

As we have journeyed through another week, separately, yet still together, we would like to say first and foremost, how much we are truly missing all of you. We hope you are beginning each day with this small act of courage and hope, and are meeting each day as it comes. We are beginning to hear birds chirping outside and can feel the slight breeze through a cracked window. Plants are sprouting as bugs and insects begin to whizz through the air. We hold on to these signs of spring as signals of hope and renewal. They fill us with positivity as we envision being back together with all of you, at FCfC.

In the attached pdf, please find activities for children and adults  awareness resources (including Five Steps to Mindfulness), and information on emotional wellbeing, specifically on cultivating the Quaker value of INTEGRITY.
