Hey Everybody! –

It was good to take some time after worship last week to talk about some of the transitions we are facing as a congregation. And, in fact, as I mentioned, I’d like to carve out some more time in the coming weeks to have a bit more conversation together.  So mark your calendars and plan on staying after worship/lunch (from about 12:15 or so, for 45 minutes) for a few more Congregational Conversations in the coming weeks. I’ll have some things to share, but your voice will matter, too:

May 12     What happened to the Church? (The Great Unraveling); and, why is change sooooo hard?

May 19     Can we really sell – and even (gulp) demolish? – a church building??? (Aren’t they sacred space?)

[May 26     We’ll have worship and lunch, but no Congregational Conversation today]

June 2      How to do church in the 21st century? Start with “the God question”

June 9      Developing a litany for letting go, and leaning into God’s future…       

*****

As we continue in the season of Eastertide, the sermon text for Sunday is John 10:22-30 – which, um, doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the resurrected Jesus!  Still there’s a lot here to chew on, so I hope you get a chance to read it through a few times before worship.

Look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

Grace and peace,

Pastor Heidi
