PEN-PAL

Possible Connection with Unitarian from United State

Dear Rev. Bridget Spain,
I hope this email finds you safe and well during this tumultuous time in all our lives.
          I am writing with an unusual inquiry. But first, I should provide the story behind my request.
          About 15 years ago, I took my parents on a trip to Ireland, a place very near and dear to our family ~ deep Irish roots. I have traveled to Ireland for a variety of reasons, both personal and professional, more than 10 times. While on our trip, I surprised my parents by taking them to the Unitarian Church in Dublin.
          We attended as a family, the First Unitarian Church of Chicago, Illinois. When my parents relocated to Bloomington, Indiana, they joined the University Unitarian Church.
          This morning, while talking by phone to my 98-year-old mother, she asked me if I could research the address for the Unitarian Church in Dublin. She shared that she is hoping to connect with a senior member(s) of your congregation. In her words, “I would love to have a pen pal” with a member of the Dublin Unitarian Church. My mother is not computer literate so all correspondence would have to be the old-fashioned way of communicating through letter writing. Both of my parents (98 and 99 years young) are incredibly sharp with wonderful life experiences to share and exchange.
          If this is something you believe is possible, then we can communicate further about the logistics.
          I appreciate in advance your consideration of my request and look forward to hearing from you.

With deep respect,

Paula Gardner
