An Update as PA Moves Forward

This Friday, June 5th, Chester and surrounding area counties are all slated to move into the “Yellow” phase of Pennsylvania’s re-opening plan. This means that some WellSprings members may see retail shops re-opening in their area, may be re-adjusting to some form of in-person work, facing new decisions about child care and summer camps – or perhaps, just making some shifts to their own social behaviors – as the stay-at-home order is lifted.  At this time, WellSprings plans to continue our current…

Looking Ahead: A Letter From Rev. Lee

This message is available as a video, and as a letter. Dear WellSpringers, As I sat down to write today, I tried to remember the last time I saw any of you in person. I checked the calendar – it was March 8th – a Sunday morning, like any other.

(Digital) Coffee with Rev. Lee

Before we began physically social-distancing, Rev. Lee would host open hours twice a week at local coffee shops, over lunchtime. Whomever wanted to drop by was welcome – all could get to know each other, and have a consistent time and place to find Rev. Lee. Obviously, our current situation means WellSpringers won’t be meeting up in person now, but Rev. Lee is making space for us to gather with her, and with each other, in other ways. On Tuesdays,…
