Who Are the Saints?

Contrary to popular belief, it is not the New Orleans football team that is considered to be the Saints! As defined by Merriam-Webster, a saint is "a good and holy person and especially one who in the Christian church is declared to be worthy of special honor." Most of us have many saints in our lives. Saints present themselves as people who have played a significant role in our faith formation, understanding, or ongoing struggles of life. They may be parents, grandparents, neighbors, teachers, coaches, or any mentor in our life.

What is the Repudiation of the Doctrine of Discovery?

This last Sunday there was an insert included in the bulletin calling us to action regarding the Doctrine of Discovery.  At General Synod 29 held this last summer an amendment passed titled, "CALLING FOR THE UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST TO REPUDIATE THE DOCTRINE OF DISCOVERY WHICH AUTHORIZED THE GENOCIDE OF NATIVE PEOPLES AND THE THEFT OF NATIVE LANDS."  What does that mean to us, and why should we be concerned?  As we find "Columbus Day" on the calendar this week, we should be asking what discovery means, and what, if any rights or privileges it carries.

A Day of Celebration!

What a grand Sunday we had celebrating the 175th Anniversary of First Congregational Church!  Our morning Worship featured a Reunion Choir, a challenge to work as hard, if not harder than our ancestors for social justice from Rev. Ron Buford, and celebrating communion with this year's first communion class.  The sermon will be available on the website in the very near future.  Assisting in leading Worship was Wisconsin Conference Minister Rev. Franz Rigert, and Associate Conference Minister for the Southwest Conference and former minister at First Congregational, Rev. Joanne Thomson.
