"The church announced a season of Lent, from the old English word lenten, meaning ‘spring’ – not only a reference to the season before Easter, but also an invitation to a springtime of the soul. Forty days to cleanse the system and open the eyes to what remains when all comfort is gone. Forty days to remember what it is like to live by the grace of God alone and not by what we can supply for ourselves.” ~~ Barbara Brown Taylor

IT'S OFFICIAL! Those members present at the special congregational meeting on 2/19 unanimously voted to call Pastor Char Corbett to be our next settled pastor. Pastor Char will be moving to Maine with her family in July to be with us. All who had the good fortune to meet her this weekend were delighted with her warmth and authenticity, her wonderful sense of humor, her enthusiasm and her full-to-the-brim faith.
