From the Minister
I’ve been looking ahead ever more avidly to our first ever Radical Love Party, which we’ll celebrate on Nov. 19 right after the worship service. Among other things, it will be a great way to follow-up our installation of new members during the service. As I hope you’ve heard, the party is replacing our annual auction. Instead of selling services and goods to each other, everything is going to be given away. (For details, including how we hope to offset the lost contribution of the auction to the budget, please see my Labor Day weekend sermon at http://www.cvuus.org/services/how-dare-we-do-this/).
I like experiments in general. One of my favorite parts of this one is the invitation to think much more creatively about what we are offering each other. I’m especially intrigued about what we might offer that wouldn’t be available if money was changing hands. Just this morning, for instance, it occurred to me that I’d love the chance to cruise around with Chris Mason and see first-hand a day in the life of a Middlebury police officer.
