Heart and Mind – Dr. Lou Yock – December 2020

We like to look forward to things. We need things to look forward to. In the darkest days of the year, the winter festivals of the solstice are about turning the corner, renewal, and the anticipation of longer, better, days. With the return of lengthening light, we are assured that our hopes are confirmed for […]

Heart and Mind – Dr. Lou Yock – November 2020

Doing the season of Thanksgiving, I especially have much to be thankful for.  First of all, I wish to thank everyone for their well wishes, cards, food, and dog walks.  Piper now looks out the window excitedly wondering who might be coming by to take him for a walk.  Those who do understand why it […]

A week has not passed without several people asking me if there was a way they could help out with a financial or […]

When I noticed the white, yellow, and purple crocuses blooming among the drab ground and leaf letter, I was quite surprised. I knew it would be coming soon, but I was still taken back a bit and delighted to see them there. So, taking it as my signal, I quickly went out and sprayed my […]

The annual campaign, which this year is entitled “Keeping the Dream, Building for All, and Growing Our Future,” will begin on March 15, but other than running through the early spring, it will not be typical. This year we are looking to accomplish several tasks.  First of all, the campaign committee wants to meet with […]

Starting on February 23rd, we will begin using a new service script for our Sunday Service. Since last fall, interested members from the worship committee, among the worship associates, and from the congregation, have been working toward allowing more options and flexibility in the words we hear and recite.  The script, which is now in […]
