I invite my friends and family at United Christian Parish to enjoy this special Pentecost Offering in Song by the College of Regional Ministers (including yours truly). May the reconciling power and love of the Holy Spirit renew each of us, our congregations, our nation and world! Blessed Pentecost!
SCAM ALERT! Warning to UCP members! This morning I got an email supposedly from Marilyn Silvey, who is out of town. The person asked me to buy $400 worth of Itunes Gift Cards for her relative who's having a birthday, then scratch off the silver strip and give "Marilyn" the numbers. "Marilyn" would supposedly pay me back the $400 once she got back in town. This is a SCAM! Please be careful if you get an email from [email protected].
He has risen
Happy Easter to you all!
I may be a retired vampire, but some things never die. I hope others remember there's a huge shortage. 4,000 blood drives nationally were canceled this week. There are places you can donate if you are healthy. We are all in this together! www.inovablood.org
Please consider supporting United Christian Parish Preschool by dining out at Glory Days tonight! Simply dine-in or carry-out at any Glory Days location, save your itemized receipt (not credit card receipt) and submit it to the church office attn: preschool fundraiser. 10% of the sales we generate will be contributed to the preschool’s scholarship fund. You’ll be cooking enough next week—take tonight off! See you there! 🍔🥗🍕
Thank you to everyone who welcomed me this morning! What an amazing community you have built!
Blessed beauty of nature!
The word for March 7 is Wander. One of my favorite places to wander is the grounds of Weston Priory in Weston, VT. I never take a walk there but I am refreshed and invigorated. It is a very peaceful place.

Mission: Creating opportunities for all people in the community to experience the amazing grace and love of God, whom we know through Christ.

"And though faith is concerned with what we cannot see, hope provides us with sight beyond what we can see. In spite of our current circumstances, our suffering, or our anxieties, the resurrection of Jesus still fills our lives with the possibility to ignite our hope and renew our faith."

Almighty God, we lift up Lebanon and its people to you. May you wrap your loving arms around those who have lost loved ones, are injured or are suffering. We pray for emergency services who continue to search through the rubble. We pray that in the devastation and despair, there will be glimmers of hope and life. Amen.

Pick up a cup between now and Sunday prior to the service. You may also use your own bread and juice. Don't have bread or juice? Improvise. It doesn't matter what you use. What matters is remembering the body and blood of Jesus given for you.

🎶”Lord, hasten the day when our faith shall be sight,
the clouds be rolled back like a scroll,
the trumpet shall sound, and the Lord shall descend;
even so it is well with my soul.
It is well with my soul
It is well, it is well, with my soul"

Racial Justice Conversation on Friday, July 17, 7 PM

Getting ready for Sunday! Can anyone guess where we are? #thechurchhasleftthebuilding

We want to express our deep gratitude to the person or persons who helped secure parts of our Black Lives Matter and LGBTQI+ banners. We believe that recent high winds tore loose some of the ties attaching the banners to the holder, as well as damaging the banners themselves. Before we were able to fix it, we realized that some very kindly person(s) had secured parts of the banners that must have been flapping in the wind. They were attached to the holder in ways that the wind couldn't have done. We continue to be blessed by our neighbors and hope we are a blessing as well. We plan to get the banners repaired/replaced quickly, but in the meantime they are again arrayed in their somewhat tattered, but still meaningful glory.

We can’t say enough how thankful we are for everyone who made virtual Vacation Bible School such a meaningful experience for our children last week! All the fun we had during VBS was showcased in worship yesterday. Thank you Indira and Mandela for singing to “Mars & Beyond,” the VBS theme song.
