Our Hearts Should Ache

Our Hearts Should Ache...

.-when we hear that someone cannot be treated for a disease because they don’t have health insurance.

-when we hear that someone has died because they couldn’t afford a prescription.

-when someone is shot and killed because of a “stand your ground” law.

-when a woman no longer is thought of as able to make good decisions about their own health.

-when many people are killed because a person is able to buy a weapon that shoots multiple rounds of ammunition.

-when people who are dying are not provided a death with dignity.

-when human services are cut for our brothers and sisters.

-when children are forgotten or dismissed by our institutional systems.

-when a person is judged by the color of one’s skin or who they love, or the level of their income.

-when a person is misunderstood because of mental illness.

Wisconsin Conference Annual Meeting Reflection

Every two years our denomination holds General Synod. The Wisconsin Conference sends delegates to the synod. This year one of the younger delegates was our own Becca Kesting. The church is always trying to encourage younger members to participate to continue the life of this great denomination. We are proud that Becca represented Wisconsin and First Congregational. I hope you not only read her reflections below, but take the time to engage in a conversation with her.          Eldonna

Wisconsin Conference Annual Meeting: Our Connection!

Every year our members have the opportunity to be part of the statewide annual meeting. This year our delegates were Tom Rickner, Moderator, and Paul Karch, Moderator-Elect. I have asked them to share some thoughts about their experience, and maybe even get more of us excited to attend next year!!
