Greetings from Tom Lenhart

I wanted to write to introduce myself. Many of you know that I will be the “Sabbatical” Minister at Westmoreland until early April while Tim is away. I was a member of Westmoreland for more than 20 years while practicing law in DC and left in 2002 to attend Harvard Divinity School and eventually become an ordained minister in the UCC. It is a privilege to be back with you. My hope is that over the next few months I can help support the energy, community, outreach and worship that so characterizes this wonderful church. I look forward to meeting many of you for the first time and to renewing my friendship with many others in the congregation. If I can be of assistance or help, please let me know. I am eagerly looking forward to our time together 

Peace and blessing,
Tom
