Deepening Our Faith through the Lenten Season We will soon be entering into the Lenten Season, where we metaphorically travel to the cross and ultimately to the empty tomb. One of the pit stops along the way is self-reflection. I typically don’t mind this at first, but as soon as I encounter something that I don’t like about who I am, what I do, or what I think and If I have to change my behavior somehow, I quickly wonder, “Who has time for this self-reflection anyway??!”

October 2018

My sabbatical was certainly restorative and rejuvenating, and I am grateful for the time that I was given. Thank you. One thing I enjoyed during my time away was beginning a blog entitled, “Faith on Location.” I appreciated connecting my faith to various every day circumstances. The discipline of writing helped me think through how I experience God’s presence in our world today. I do believe God is active, often nudging our hearts, or speaking to us through people or the situations we experience. Our job is to take notice and to listen.

October 2017 Belfry Echoes

With the autumn season come many renewed activities at church. Church school, youth programs, music rehearsals, and many more start again. One of the important autumn activities is the Stewardship Campaign for the next calendar year. Kicking off the campaign on September 24th, you received a brochure from the Stewardship Board that described the valuable activities of our wonderful church.

September 2017 Belfry Echoes

As I sit in my office writing this article for the Belfry, I am reflecting about last week’s events in Charlottesville, VA. I cannot help but feel sadness as well as anger in the aftermath of this horrific act of violence by White Supremacists, Neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members, where a young woman was killed and 19 others injured. This madness has to stop! It’s hard to believe that we are in the year 2017 and we are still experiencing RACISM in its fullness. We cannot deny that RACISM is still very much alive in America. We need to come together as people of faith to pray for our country, for each other and “for a just world for all”.

July 2017 Belfry Echoes

Beloved community of faith, I hope that you are all enjoying the warmth of these summer days and the slower pace of the week. Perhaps you’re just winding down from all the busyness of winter and spring as you take a step back for some time to relax.
