News: Reflections on in the midst of . . dark and light

During this Lenten series, in the midst of . . . dark and light, we have been examining the ways we experience dark and light.  Not only have we been using the sermons, but we have read books, sang hymns, and viewed dark/light through liturgy, art and poetry. Each of us sees the benefits and challenges of dark and light through different eyes. I have asked the other clergy and a few members to reflect on what this series has meant to them before we enter Palm Sunday and Holy Week.

News: Processing Space Conversation

This last Sunday we offered a “Processing Space” after worship for youth and adults to have a safe space to share emotions following the shooting of Tony Robinson. We began and ended the time with prayer and Biblical text. The scripture used was Micah 6:6-8. 

With what shall I come before God, and bow myself before God on high?

Shall I come before God with burnt offerings, with calves a year old?

Will God be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil?

Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

God has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does God require of you

but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

First Congregational is a justice-driven church, but the foundation of working for and toward justice are the two bottom pieces of the triangle: love kindness and walking humbly with God.
