Good people of West Parish,

Oh, were you there on Sunday?   Did you feel the energy?   The spirit?   Did you experience the fellowship?   Did your heart soar when we sang the hymns?

After three chaotic days of danger and uncertainty, it was so good to be together with our South Church neighbors and proclaim the love of God.   We’d been through a lot, but we were all safe, and we were together.   

This was church at its best!   This was the United Church of Christ at its best!

This Sunday, it will be “just“ us West Parish folks.   We, who love our small, vibrant and welcoming community, will give thanks for our spiritual home.   And we will sing and pray and be uplifted by the word of God.  Alleluia!
