From the Pastors

  • We’re now 3 weeks out from a fraught presidential election, and many of us are finding ourselves in a higher zone of anxiety. Maybe you feel it in your body, or perhaps you’re unable to focus as well as usual (is it the election or is it pandemic? likely, both). We’re also facing the fact that we will likely have to wait for election results much longer than we often do. How will you take care of yourself leading up to and beyond November 3?


  • Connection is one of the most significant pieces I’m missing in our church life these days. We don’t get to mingle in the social hall or bump into each other in the hallway after board meetings. Zoom events help a little, but often we do our business and log off (screen time is exhausting in its own ways).


  • One of the litanies I hear from many of you is the frustration you feel when you see folk not wearing masks in crowded space. It seems like such a simple thing to do for the wellbeing of our community, so it boils within us when we wonder if people can ever actually care for one another as Jesus taught.
