The pandemic is ending: lockdown has lessened, vaccines are available, masks are optional in many places, people are gathering in person again, businesses are opening their physical as well as virtual doors…. Even as we see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel, the truth is that the world will never go back to the old “normal.” Nor will we go back to who we were before the pandemic. We have all been changed by what we lost, missed out on and found during the pandemic. Who are we now? Who do we want to be now? Who could we be now?
Rev. Andrew Weber is a Unitarian Universalist minister, currently living in Newark, DE with his wife and two children. Andrew is a part-time CrossFit Coach at the University of Delaware, part-time pulpit supply minister at area congregations (like here) and full-time parent. All of these pieces together make up a path of seeking to help people and communities live into their best selves. Personally, Andrew enjoys long distance running for meditation and competition; eats a plant-based diet; likes cooperative board games; speaks Hungarian conversationally; reads historical fiction, science-fiction & fantasy and listens to opera & techno. Andrew strives to continue to live a mindful and grounded life for himself, his family and the world. He reflects on living a faith-informed life on an online blog called “How to Drive Like a Minister”.
