Greetings from your real, live, ordained pastor! Many thanks for the prayers, support, and presence that accompanied my family and me through this weekend. I look forward to our homecoming celebration this Saturday at 4:30 at the church. Our brief, ecumenical service will also beÂ live-streamedÂ at 4:30.
Different celebrations continue this Sunday as we recognize our grads, dads, and newest national holiday: Juneteenth. We also begin our summer journey with the Hebrew prophets this week, as we encounter Elijah on the run for his life. Weâ€™ll retrace his steps in search of nourishment, purpose, and clarity for our own journeys. Whetherâ€”like Elijah and our graduatesâ€”we find ourselves at a crossroads, or are simply putting one foot in front of another in longer-term vocationsâ€”like parenthood or freedom-seekingâ€”we do well to draw in close and listen for Godâ€™s still, small voice.
I look forward to being with you again this weekend,
