From the pastor...
Grace and Peace to you all,
A new day has dawned. A new month has arrived. So many new and exciting things are before us. I’m thrilled to be called to Grace UCC and look forward to meeting each of you and getting to know you, as you also get to know me! I have found that one of the best ways to connect, is to share stories. As we learn and grow together in this dance called ministry, I look forward to hearing your stories – both those that are affirming, as well as challenging – for they help us to show one another who we are.
Summer is a busy time in Wisconsin, since the season always seems too short. The days are seemingly longer and our lives seem to be getting more and more busy. In the fullness of these days, I share with you this prayer by Marian Wright Edelman:
God, help me to feel Your presence everywhere I go today.
To see You in everyone I meet today.
To sense You in all I hear today.
To reflect You in all I do today.
To pray to and trust You in all I experience today.
To struggle to be like You in all I am today.
To speak of and for You in all I say today.
To thank You for everything every day.
Whether traveling or at home, tending to the need for fresh air and warm sunshine or
appreciating the coolness of the lake breeze (or air conditioning), may you find God’s presence and give thanks.
In Christ’s perfect love and peace,
