W hat Does Church Mean To You?

During Lent this year we took on something new that ended up being quite a wonderful experience: meditations on the daily readings for Lent. Those who were interested selected one of the readings and wrote a response on how those words spoke to them. Quite to our surprise, folks of all ages took this on; and to a person, we were treated to some of the most thought-provoking writings to start our day. 

We write to offer a similar opportunity.  This pandemic is certainly different than anything we’ve lived through to this point in history. The church - both the capital C church we reference in the Nicene Creed, and the local church at which we worship - has taken on a new meaning for many of us. What we are offering is this: essays / meditations / thoughts on what the church has meant to and for you / what role it has played in your life during this time. No further explanation is needed; please interpret that as you wish and start writing! The length is up to you. We’d like these by August 1.

This is what we plan to do.  Everything will be collected and put into a book which will find a home on the shelf in the library and will be committed to both the Vestry minutes and archives.  This is a unique opportunity we want to save and share with the St. Thomas of the future. We hope you will join in this endeavor.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Blessings,
Carol and Tami
