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,
