ONSITE & ZOOM. Rev. Barnaby and others reflect on the many ways our ministries ripple throughout CVUUS and the wider world. With special music by our Choir and musical guests Jonathan March on drum and Hans Kindstedt on bass. As VT looks at amending its Constitution to protect reproductive rights, we’ll share our collection with Planned Parenthood of Middlebury for this month. Watch a recording of the service posted on You Tube here.

My heart is moved by all I cannot save
So much has been destroyed

Perversely, with no extraordinary power, reconstitute the world.
