Heaven on Earth

Posted by on Sep 16, 2018 in General News, Worship Services


How do diverse communities of people find a sense of Unity? Maybe we can “create a heaven here on earth where love and truth and justice reign. Let us welcome all at our Pearly Gates, our Freedom Table, amid singing and great rejoicing, black, white, yellow, red, and all our lovely colors, straight, gay, transgendered, bisexual, and all the ways of that exist to loving. Blind, deaf, mute, healthy, sick, variously-abled, young, old, fat, thin, gentle, cranky, joyous, sorrowing. Let no one feel excluded, let no one feel alone.”

Join us this Sunday as, Rev. Dr. Marjorie Matty wonders what Heaven on Earth might look like and how we can work together to imagine and build the beloved community that honors diversity.

Spirituality Book Group, Sept. 22, 10:30am

Posted by on Sep 12, 2018 in General News

Spiritual Book Group Discussion on Saturday Sept. 22 10:30 am in the Brackett Room
Please join us for a discussion of Here if you need me: a True Story by Kate Braestrup.

Here is a description  of the book from Amazon.  “HERE IF YOU NEED ME is the story Kate Braestrup’s remarkable journey from grief to faith to happiness – as she holds her family together in the wake of her husband’s death, pursues his dream of becoming a minister, and ultimately finds her calling as a chaplain to search-and-rescue workers. It is dramatic, funny, deeply moving, and simply unforgettable–an uplifting account of finding God through helping others, and of the small miracles that happen every day when a heart is grateful and love is restored.”

Several members of the book group are eager to get together after the summer hiatus.  Feel free to join us even if you haven’t finished the book.  It will be a good discussion.  Come contribute your thoughts on the book and your suggestions for our next book.

The Spiritual Book Group meets every 2 months on a Saturday morning. Contact Leslie Lowe with comments and questions.
