The Inspired Caregiver: Finding Joy While Caring for Those You Love, by Peggi Speers

While caring for a loved one often brings rewards, it is also normal for it to have its unique challenges. Several months ago, we began a “Caregiver Support” group here at First Congregational. We agreed that some of our meetings would be to gather for supportive conversation and that some would be for educational programming with experts in the field.

New JAZZ Worship

Jazz has proved to be very difficult to define, since it encompasses such a wide range of music spanning a period of over 100 years, from ragtime to the present day. Attempts have been made to define jazz from the perspective of other musical traditions, such as European music history or African music. But because of the individuality of the jazz musicians themselves, and because of the improvisation so closely linked to jazz, no definition is broad enough to cover jazz. So instead of defining, we as the performer or listener, immerse ourselves in the music itself, not being constrained by a definition.

"Draw the Circle Wide": Living the Commitment to Radical Hospitality

As I write this article for the Tower, I am enjoying God’s gifts of summer – the warmth and beauty of the setting sun, the rainbow colors of wildflowers and woods, the music of the whip-poor-wills, phoebes, mourning doves and loons. I am in the north woods of Michigan for several days of writing and respite. In the calm of the evening, I have ventured out in the kayak and observed the stillness of the lake occasionally disturbed by the tail of a damsel or dragonfly. I am always amazed at how something so small results in such a large rippling effect. The concentric circles spread amazingly fast and grow so large.

JOIN THE CIRCLE! Summer Children's Musical

In light of recent events across our country, it seemed apropos for a group of children to gather in a circle and sing about God's love and the need to make sure that circle is wide enough to include everyone.

The Gift of Welcoming

First Congregational has always been attentive to the needs of members with disabilities. Structural changes like the addition of the elevator and the garden entrance have provided for better access to the Sanctuary and meeting rooms. As we plan for remodeling in the building, attention is given to how we use this opportunity of physical changes in the building to enhance accessibility. Accessibility and welcome are an ongoing need for the church.
