Many are concerned and despairing over the presidential transition that is occurring in our country this weekend while others are relieved and hopeful. On Friday, Donald Trump becomes the president of the United States to much fanfare and festivity, while on Saturday 100’s of thousands of women, including some from our very own congregation, will be marching in Washington, Boston and elsewhere to voice concern for human rights that many feel will be under greater threat in the coming years. On Sunday at 10 am, though, we will be gathering again, as we do every Sunday of the year to worship God and gather strength and inspiration for the faithful living of our lives. From our disparate identity groups, we touch back at the beginning of each week to our scriptures, our prayers, our community of faith, and reclaim our most essential identity as children of God. Rev. Will’s sermon will focus on this identity as it relates to Jesus’ calling of the disciples in Matthew chapter 4. Rev. Judy will offer a Time for the Young since Ben will be away on the Youth Ski Trip (with 26 youth and 10 adults from our congregation) and the choir will be singing a beautiful Sacred Harp tune called Lone Wild Bird. Please join us.
