Thank You From the Pastor

The dedication for the new main entrance was held last night and it was a spectacular event! So many people have put so much time and hard work into this project, and though they don’t want it, they deserve our recognition. Our building committee was Mike Davis, Darwin Root, and Laura Wachter. The time and effort they put into the project was phenomenal! They had so many meetings, emails, walk-throughs, and on-site work and I’m thankful for all of their time which they volunteered. The planning committee for last night’s dedication was Cheryl Case, Tallu Smith, and me. We had a great time working on the planning and even though the candles wouldn’t light in the wind, it was still a great service. The Session has been working on this project for so many years, that I can’t name everyone who has served on the Session during the process. It has been a dream for years that has finally come to fruition.  So, if you have served on Session while this was being worked on, thank you!

My hope and prayer is that this new main entrance will be seen as an invitation to the community to come inside and join us in God’s mission. I also pray that we will all be rededicated to our mission and take it out through those doors into our community and the world.  God is at work in and through us, let’s share that with others!

                       Library Corner

The Library Corner this month is an eclectic collection of pieces of information!  First, the Liturgical Mystery books are in and available.  The best way to read them is in order of their writing and the Church Librarian (also known as Church Secretary, Office manager, Book-keeper, etc.…) will know when volume 1 (The Alto Wore Tweed) is available so a call to Tina could save you a trip—and, if space allows, a little more comment about Church Secretaries will show up later in this column!.  Anyway, the books are in.

Now, items #2 and #3: Some of the most interesting books in the Church Library came from “reading” groups—sometimes classes and others were suggested by book “clubs” or something of the kind.  Currently, there are two such groups active in the church and anyone interested in either church or books or both should be participating. 

The first is known as The Believe it or Not Book Club; all are invited to join regardless of age, sex, or interests. The groups selects a book, all read it and then gather to discuss it and share opinions about it—and that means the comments are all over the place which makes it really fun to hear what someone else thought the author meant when you ‘know’ what she/he meant!  The group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at noon either at the Main Cup (if covid restrictions allow) or by Zoom.  

The second group is currently called The Reading Crew Review (name may change soon) and it meets via Zoom on the 4th Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m.  This group also includes all ages, genders, etc., but the format is almost directly opposite that of the other: this group allows each of the participants, if they want, two or three minutes to share what they are currently reading, or have read and enjoyed, with the whole group.  You might be surprised by how discerning an eight-year-old can be!

Either group, when meeting by Zoom, needs to know ahead of time if you want to be “invited” to the meeting. All are invited but Tina needs to add your name the list for you to “join” the meeting.  And that brings us to “secretaries” again.  I assure you I know the following: Ministers try to please everyone but invariably don’t; members try to please ministers and sometimes don’t; church secretaries please all, do all, and are with no doubt the most knowledgeable people in any church organization.  I had the good fortune to be introduced to the wonders of a church secretary by the mother of one of our church’s members—thank you Dorcas Rhodes, mother of Bette Sledd. She put up with me and taught me well which made succeeding years much, much easier and more productive.  

Our church is very fortunate to have Tina filling this critical role where she is “everything-to-everyone” — see above: she is Librarian, Zoom inviter, answers the phone when any of us calls the church, keeps the records, puts up with minister and assistant librarians and on and on and on, So, I hear by declare next week as secretary appreciation week and hope you will tell her how much you appreciate all she does.  Meanwhile, ask for an invite to both reading groups and come join us for a lot of fun and learning.
