An annual tradition: on the first Sunday of the new year, we remember those we lost in the past year, and celebrate those born in the past year. Co-led by me (Rev. Lara) and the Deacons.

Our (hybrid) Christmas Eve Service was a little different this year! We started out inside, then ended outside by the fire pit so that we could have some singing. It was lovely!

We did something a little different this year. Because of “yellow light” Covid-19 conditions, we could not do our traditional Cornbread Communion. Instead, the Deacons and I used menti.com to have folks share something that made them feel grateful.

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.
