Good Friday
Today's service is called
"Listen: Hearing that Still Small Voice and Finding Your Own"
it was adapted by Pastor Gina from © Dr. Marcia McFee,
“The Worship Design Studio with Dr. Marcia McFee" 
I have crafted a document of self-guided Stations of the Cross for you. The stations are modified from the classic ones a bit, and I have dropped in some stunning visual representations of great works of art that correspond. There is a virtual bounty of art available for the viewing thanks to the internet. I have taken particular care to vary the types of artists represented, and the styles. Some will move you, and I suspect some will challenge you.

Move through these pages/stations as prayer prompts, spending as much time with each out as you feel moved to spend. If you are someone who finds a voice in writing or through your own artistic expression, you might consider your own medium to express thoughts and prayers at each station.

Surprisingly, I am grateful for the excuse to reinvent Good Friday in this way. I hope they are as much a gift to you in these passion-filled days as they have been to me in the creating.

Blessings as you journey through these Holy Days.
Pastor Gina
The NH Conference of the UCC is hosting a series of theological roundtables around the themes and conversations of Holy Week. Panelists (including Pastor Gina and the Rev. Dr. Beth Nordbeck) are UCC pastors from all over New Hampshire.

These will begin on Palm Sunday.
You can find them on the Conference's Facebook page.

If "study" is your way to move through Holy Week, be sure to tune-in.
If you are missing the whole of our annual ecumenical service, you might watch last year's service. Our friends at All Saints Episcopal Church were kind enough to film it, and re-share the link with us. If you are looking for particular passages, songs... click "Show Me More" when you are in YouTube and there is a list of time-stamps to guide your viewing.

I encourage you to make good practice of them in times that work for you. You will need a wreath with four candles in it, and one in the center (the Paschal light). If you do not have an advent wreath for candles, simply use four candles circling one in the center.

Please remember to send in your offering, as you are able.
We are still checking mail at the post office, and our counters are still making deposits. Many of our expenses continue.
