“All We Kindred Pilgrim Souls?”

May 16, 2021

As we have talked about over the years, our congregation is (strange as it may seem) descended from the Puritans. You might recall that the Pilgrims (or “Separatists”) who landed in Plymouth in 1620 are a particular subset of the Puritans. For our Auction Sermon, our own church historian, Joyce Williams, has asked me some interesting questions. Namely, How did the Separatists (or Pilgrims) of Plymouth Colony and the Puritans of Boston get along? Did they merge? I found some interesting information to share, and some thoughts about what we might learn from it all.

“Giving Thanks in All Things”

On November 22, 2020, our virtual service featured our traditional Cornbread Communion, led by our Deacons. My homily was “Giving Thanks in All Things”. We also had virtual greetings from FCU members and friends far and wide. If you watch on YouTube, click on “Show More” to see the Order of Service.
