Rev. Barnaby led us on a “Nature walk” looking for species of heroism we often don’t notice, with readings from our Hymnal as his guidebook. We collected for Honor the Earth as Share the Plate donee for Nov. Coffee hour followed in Fellowship Hall. View a recording of the service here.

Chalice Lighting

Superheroes by Cynthia Landrum

Mindful that

With great powers comes great responsibility,

We light this chalice in the hopes that

In the brightest day, in the darkest night,

Our faith will

Flame on!
