I have been doing lots of thinking and observing, one thing I have noticed is how compassionate and caring we are to those who we know, those who are part of our community. This gives me great hope. We are blessed that we notice when people aren’t here, and we go check on them. AND that is truly amazing! We are living into our core values. Now it is also time to open ourselves up and move out of our comfort zones and invite those that we might not know, or know as well, to feel connected to our community as well. What a loving and caring community Grace UCC is. I am blessed to be your pastor.
