2020 began with a declaration that it was the year to DREAM. None of us could envision that it would become a year of crisis, challenge, and change. Within a few weeks into the new year, we were confronted with a global pandemic, civil insurgence, racial unrest, political polarization, financial crisis, painful loss, and mass closures. To add to these unforeseen troubles, Oregon was hit with 37 destructive wildfires. We all felt the sting of loss, and the distress of dashed dreams. Our General Superintendent, Doug Clay, said of 2020, “we encountered…a year of disorienting challenges.” Amen!
