Day by Day

Heather SeamansA little more than a week ago, I had the privilege of visiting Heather.  She sang this song from her bed in the hospital:

Day by day, Oh dear Lord, three things I pray:

To see thee more clearly

Love thee more dearly

Follow thee more nearly, day by day.


All are Welcome in This Place

This past Sunday, the sanctuary filled with so much energy and joy as we gathered in larger numbers for Covenanting Sunday.  Old friends and new visitors, young and not-so-young joined in worshiping God.  We came together to reaffirm our intention to build a house where love can dwell.  It sounded kind of like this… well, without the brass! Welcome, and welcome back, everyone.  Thanks be to God.
