Sing Unto the Lord a New Song
Camp Hanover is creating a Psalter this summer. They invite folks with any connection to Camp Hanover to create a hand-written and/or illustrated version of each Psalm. Hand write your chosen Psalm on one side of an 8.5 x 11” piece of paper and create a short reflection on the reverse side. Feel free to color, draw, collage, highlight, or decorate your page in whatever way is meaningful to you! Contributions are due by August 7, 2020.
Camp Creating Worship Service
Camp Hanover staff and friends are working on a recording of a full worship service for congregations to use. Whether your pastor, music director, and other leaders need a Sunday Sabbath, or you'd just like to use a few parts of worship for something a little different, we'll make videos available by Wednesday, July 29 for use any time after. The service will be based on selections from Isaiah 40. For more information and to sign up to receive some pieces or the whole service, contact Colleen Earp .
Union Holds Conversation on Unjust Policing
Union Seminary hosted a webinar on July 7 to discuss Christian response to unjust policing. The panel included Alex Evans, pastor at Second Church in Richmond. Learn about the conversation in an article by Presbyterian News Service or view a recording of the webinar on Facebook. For more discussion on public safety, Union will host another panel on Tuesday, June 14, at 7 p.m. through Facebook.
A New Perspective on Wearing a Mask
Precautions--such as wearing masks and keeping a physical distance from others--are necessary in today's environment. A pastor in Colorado urges us to think of these precautions not as "what is being taken away or limiting us." Instead, he frames them as spiritual practices. "Taking precautions means being a 'care-full' presence in the world," he says.
