Rev. Steven Chambers 10/22/18

DSCF0198What a privilege it was to hear Rev. Steven Chambers this morning.  No one slept through that sermon!  It touched so many themes that we’ve discussed in the past year.  We  were really inspired.

Thanks to Lorna for bringing him to the island this summer for the Teen Camp Meeting and for Rev. Charlotte for inviting him to preach in Chilmark.  We enjoyed meeting his Mother, Sister and Niece , Hannah, who came all the way from R.I. this morning for the service.DSCF0201Another special blessing this day was the music Lia Kahler offered, her amazing voice filling the sanctuary with Spirit.

Ahn and Bodge visit

July saw the return of two of our previous pastors.  Seongmoon Ahn and his family returned to celebrate his ordination with us, his first congregation.

Arlene Bodge joined us for worship another Sunday and the congregation was thrilled to see her well  there as well as at the sunset worship service in Oak Bluffs that was part of the youth camp meeting that weekend.

We’ve been blessed with these lovely leaders!

Prayer from April 3, 2016

Resurrecting God, as we enter the season of Eastertide, may your enduring Presence remind us of the tidal qualities of your love for us.  May your love break upon us as water upon the shore, molding and shaping us.  May it expose us to new sharpness of vision.  May your grace beckon to us the way a wave reaches out to our feet as we walk along the shore.  We open ourselves to the ways in which you will surprise, inform us, change us and draw us to you.  Grant us receptivity to your living presence in our lives.  AMEN
