“Heirloom Connections” Our May Message Series

We’re more aware than ever these days, that we are all living through history. All of us inherit the world our ancestors created, and future generations will be shaped by the choices we make today. How might we be enriched, by building relationships with people at different ages and stages of life? In this message series, we’ll take inspiration from “pen pal” exchanges between ten members of our community – ranging in age from 5 to 82 – who’ve agreed…

Moving Towards a Post-Pandemic Era: A Letter From Rev. Lee

Dear WellSpringers, There’s a joke ministers often tell – a groaner… really, “joke” might be a strong word. A well-worn line for when strange problems come up in the life of a congregation.

Ken takes a moment to reflect on the George Floyd murder trial, before…

It’s Okay to Not Be Okay

This week, Chris reflects on the entirety of the weight of the pandemic. There are different levels of loss, but she validates the fact that we’ve all lost something. Perhaps we’ve remained healthy, perhaps we’ve kept our jobs, perhaps all our loved ones are safe; yet we’ve all lost things this past year.
