November 2007

Calendar note: there is an interfaith Advent service this Wednesday, November 28th, at 7 PM, hosted by St. Andrew Lutheran Church. The theme is “Passing on the Light” and all are welcome. Choirs and clergy from around the Ellsworth area will be participating in this service of celebration.

I am so proud of this congregation. Really. It isn’t easy being small in this world of bigger-is-better, and we love new members, but even at the size we have these sweet people make stuff happen. We’ve got a growing religious exploration program for our children and youth, a newsletter, a coffee hour, a brand-new mailbox and doorbell, a Solstice/Christmas tree donated by the fine folks at the Great Pond Mountain Conservation Land Trust in Orland (check out their organic tree fair this weekend!), a website, and most recently, audio sermons!

Thanks to everyone who makes these things happen. I am grateful to have found such a can-do congregation.
