Heart Thoughts: Ishmael and Isaac, Millionaires

There is always something to be grateful for and people to appreciate in our life. I am grateful for those of you who I get to interact with each week that help make our Sundays happen… Deana, Christine, and Scott. Then, of course, Bill Taylor and Nancy Burnette for making the delicious coffee, and Nancy Sawyer for doing the clean up after coffee hour. I want to bring your attention to a workshop that will happen after the service this Sunday. It is a workshop on Feng Shui presented by Steph Plourde. I am really excited about this as I…

Heart Thoughts: Rolling Away the Stone

I am reflecting on Sunday’s service and still feeling the wonderful energy that permeated the sanctuary. However, what I realize is missing is the children coming up at the end of the service and sharing what they learned during their time together with all of us. Our children’s program hasn’t been brought back since COVID and I miss their energy. I was talking with someone on Sunday, and they mentioned about the children, and I asked them to hold with me that we would have teachers come forward as that is what is needed. The families are waiting for the…

Heart Thoughts: Abraham, Millionaire

I know you know this, but I have to say we have awesome folks in our community. Every week I see the dedication of several making everything work. This past Saturday was our Spring Cleanup Day and once again, we had people show up, along with Jeff Plumer and his crew from Arrowhead Landscape Company. A big item that we got to check off the list was taking down the little shed that was beyond salvageable. Thanks to the efforts of Jim Staebler, Todd Glacy, and Sue Vittner, it has been demolished. The gardens out back got cleaned out and…
