From Your Minister
It has always been true, and is even more true now.
The power of the church is the people, and this power is magnified and deepened and expanded as you connect with one another.
Here in this unique moment of the long life of the church as we come back together again in so many ways, I am seeing this over and over.
The beautiful and simple power of people connecting, remembering one another, reconnecting with old friends and meeting new ones.
I just found these words from Adrienne Maree Brown which I love, and we will be sharing in worship this weekend.
Oak trees don’t set an intention to listen to each other better
or agree to hold tight to each other
when the next storm comes.
Under the earth, always, they reach for each other,
they grow such that their roots are intertwined
and create a system of strength
that is as resilient on a sunny day
as it is in a hurricane.
Nature knows about connection, and so do we.
Somewhere deep down we know that we are better, healthier, clearer, kinder and more joyful when we are connected.
And it can be hard, especially now, to find our way back.
A little over a week ago, I travelled to Austin, TX for some rest and renewal.
I woke early to head out for a day of fishing and exploring and sat for an early morning coffee right next to the sculpture in the picture above.
