A Message From Our Pastor
Dear Old South Church Members and Friends,
Do you remember that amazing feeling when you were a child and the end of school was just within sight? Everything seemed full of possibilities. There was so much that you wanted to do and the time ahead brimmed with a sense of adventure and limitlessness. The church calendar feels that way just a little bit as well. Summer is a time when we are free to add a few fun activities even as we lessen the amount of meetings and administrative church work. This summer we will be partnering with the United Church of Christ in Hartland to read four books and watch one movie from the “Be The Church,” reading list that the Annual Meeting of the Vermont Conference of the United Church of Christ put together. The longer daylight hours of summertime makes it seem as if there is actually more time, which is a trick, but a fun one. We will also have a pot-luck and Old Time Gospel hour event on June 23 celebrating that on that date I will become the longest serving pastor of Old South Church, UCC in her 248 year history. We’re also working out details for a writing workshop and a cartooning event. All ways in which we get to play with time and faith and summer together. Old South Church, UCC, is a wonderful community. If you’re interested in finding our what we’re like, please join us for any of our summer events and worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00am. If you are a regular attender and supporter, you know how much fun we have and how deeply God blesses us. I am so grateful to be a part of this community.
