“Some people feel the rain, others just get wet.”

Posted by Rev. Nathan Finnin on

“Some people feel the rain, others just get wet.”   It’s raining again today, and I’m over it. I want to go outside. I want my son to go outside. So that’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to go outside in the rain. We’re going to splash...

Worship and the new normal of daily life

Posted by Rev. Sarah Carver on

I’ve been watching DIY tutorials on hair cutting as the temptation to shed some of this mop grows. Some folks make it look pretty easy—just a pair of clippers and some pointy scissors. Now, I do have a hair appointment, rebooked for me for June 26th, which will be three months since...

Grief and Hope

Posted by Rev. Greg Farrand on

It is often said that most preachers are preaching to themselves. We create sermons that not only rise out of our hearts but are also the message we need to hear. So for better or for worse, preaching is often some form of self-therapy. I am not sure how blogs work but during this unique and...

Choose Wisely

Posted by Rev. Nathan Finnin on

When I was in divinity school, one of my professors began the first lecture of the semester by saying “if you do all of the assigned reading, you will fail.” At the time, I didn’t fully understand the depth and truth of his statement, but as the semester (and subsequent years)...

What if?

Posted by Rev. Sarah Carver on

One of the more common phrases I’ve read lately, is how the Corona Virus does not discriminate—everyone is at risk of being infected. This is true, viruses are simply opportunists, genetically programmed to spread so as to land in a host cell where they can replicate themselves...

Reacting or Responding

Posted by Rev. Greg Farrand on

“Between stimulus and response there is space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”Viktor E. Frankl There is a stark difference between reacting and responding. Reacting is knee-jerk. We typically react without...
