If 1 blood donation has the potential to save as many as 3 lives, your efforts on Saturday resulted in saving up to 117 lives. That's 39 units collected, including 3 double reds and 1 plasma.
Many thanks to you all for baking goodies, making reminder calls, staffing the canteen and donating blood. There are patients silently thanking you as well.
The next blood drive is on August 19.
#UULent has been created as a way for Unitarian Universalists to engage in a shared spiritual practice alongside siblings in faith who are observing Lent. This is an opportunity to spend the Season of Lent engaged in a spiritual discipline of deep intention and appreciation of our world, our place in it, and an openness to Grace in our daily lives. For each day in Lent a word has been selected. Each day participants are invited to reflect on the meaning of the day’s word, then create a photograph that represents the word, idea, practice, or concept and post it on the #UULent Facebook page and/or elsewhere.
Beginning on Ash Wednesday and for each day until Easter, the word for the day and a related quote will be posted on the #UULent FaceBook page (you may also view the full calendar here). Reflect and engage throughout the day, checking for the word and quote in the morning, then return later in the day to add your photo* and to see the images and words others have shared throughout the day (*YOUR photo – please respect copyright!). Or if you prefer, use another social media platform to share your photos.
May this intentional practice and discipline impact your daily life in ways that bring you closer to your spiritual core and offer you resiliency for life.
