This year's Celebration looks different. COVID-19 has dramatically shifted our lives and in many ways brought much into focus that we struggled to prioritize. We are in communities layered in grief, pain, and anxiety. We are yearning for each other and the comfort togetherness provides. And yet, we must keep our distance. One might ask, 'is it celebration at all?'
Though all of our events are digital, they are still striving for intimacy. This year's celebration is an opportunity for a new kind of introspection. It can be an invitation to reflect on a year of struggle, to wrestle with unanswerable questions, to confront an uncertain future, and still find joy in the end.
