Fall Worship Schedule

This fall promises to be full of noise and anxiety, vicious sectarian battles and cries of “Win!  Win!  Win!” wherever we turn. It’s not that the debates about the values that should guide our country forward in this present crisis are not important, indeed these are critical conversations that we need to be having.  But something will be missing in the way we most likely will live out these conversations.  In times of anxiety and change, or heated emotions and passionate commitments, our faith and scripture recall us to beginning with a place of grounding and grace, of restoring and remembering right relationship, from which all our actions and speeches can best emanate. 

 

This fall’s worship series is inspired by a little book by Benedictine, Joan Chittister, which draws from another little book, The Rule of Benedict.  We’ll consider this fall the value and gifts of Humility and how the practices we’ll consider of remembering and restoring right relationship can help us all navigate with hope and faith, courage and conviction the tumultuous months before us.

Church Cancellation Policy

It is rare that worship is cancelled due to inclement weather. If you are nervous about driving on snowy or icy roads, it is probably best to stay home and stream the service. If worship is cancelled or postponed, a message will be placed on the church answering machine (207-633-4757) and we will attempt to post cancellations on Channel 6 (WCSH)
