It’s been heartwarming to be with each other in virtual sangha since the COVID-19 pandemic upended our lives. But we can’t lie: we look forward to being with you again in person when conditions allow.
In the meantime, we’re tending to our building. Our #1 priority: upgrading our old heating-cooling-ventilation system. Here’s the reality: if we don’t have the upgrade installed by the time winter arrives, we’ll be sitting together in the cold. Another reality: When we began researching options for replacing our boiler last fall, we could not have anticipated that experts would be telling us that improved ventilation will help curb the spread of COVID-19.
Another project on our to-do list is to upgrade our interior and exterior lighting to high-efficiency LED units. Doing so will reduce our energy costs while also caring for the planet: a win-win.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for donating whatever you can to our 2020 Spring Appeal. We bow in gratitude for your generosity. May you find stillness during these challenging days.
