PLASP CEO Lynn Hiebert Shares a Message of Faith and Hope
Thank you to the many staff who continue to connect with me and with each other. It makes my day when you reach out - hearing that you are staying strong and focusing on family and friends while continuing to stay safe.
At this time of year, PLASP staff, families and communities are observing many important faith celebrations.
I extend a greeting of Chag Pesach Sameach to PLASP staff and families who are observing Passover. I wish you all the joys of the holiday.
I know many of you are focused on Good Friday and Easter Sunday coming up this weekend.
Others in our PLASP staff family are preparing for the start of Ramadan as we approach mid-April. Ramadan Mubarak.
Some in our PLASP community will celebrate Hindu New Year and Vaisakhi as we approach the middle of the month. Happy New Year. Happy Vaisakhi.
For the second time during this pandemic, we will be celebrating these important holidays very differently from usual. Rather than large gatherings in faith centres and in the homes of loved ones, we’ll be staying physically distanced, doing our best to stay connected virtually – as we’ve done for the past year.
The significance of these celebrations isn’t diminished by the long ordeal of the pandemic. In fact, these holidays are more important to us than ever. They help us to connect to an understanding of purpose and meaning during this difficult time. They unite us with wider communities locally and around the world. They remind us about the power of faith and hope.
I urge each of us to reflect on the beliefs and values that are meaningful to us, that sustain us and that connect us to hope and optimism.
Stay well and take care of yourselves and each other. As ever, my thoughts are with you.
