From Madison to Kenya: via Leigh Vierstra

This Sunday First Congregational will have a great opportunity to hear about PA-MOJA, a project that connects people and wildlife. More importantly, it is connecting students from East High School in Madison to Malek Secondary in Laikipia, Kenya. Leading the program for East High School is our very own Leigh Viersta. Many of you remember Leigh as a child of First Cong, but she has also been supported by First Cong in her personal growth. In 2006 Leigh traveled to the Marshall Islands, as a teacher. You might remember Leigh brought back baskets as a gift to the church. We use these baskets to collect our offering the first Sunday of every month. It is our honor to promote this adventure of learning for youth in the PA-MOJA Project.

The UCC Helping Lead the Sanctuary Movement in the Trump Era

The United Church of Christ has a new prophetic calling in our new political reality. After a vitriolic campaign season during one of the most controversial elections in U.S. history, many are worried about what's to come, especially those who found themselves targets in a strategy to mobilize voters through scapegoating immigrants, refugees and Muslims. This harsh rhetoric, paired with concerning Cabinet appointments, shows a growing agenda of white supremacy, patriarchy, misogyny, racism and environmental degradation that will impact vulnerable populations in potentially devastating ways.

Gratitude & Challenge

As we approach the end of 2016 and set our sights on 2017, it is important to take time to reflect on the past and imagine the possibilities ahead. I encourage all of us to take a few minutes to write down (not just hold in our head) all we have been grateful for in 2016. We have had times of pain, frustration and challenge, but I would guess even in those moments, there have been people or events that have given us reason to be grateful. It's always amazing to me that people who come to the church needing assistance have no problem listing all of the ways they are grateful. Gratitude is energizing! Gratitude can help us push the "reset" button in our lives and in our relationships. The New Year gives us opportunity to begin anew. How many pages can you fill?
