The Pastor's Post
This month, a little bit about a lot of things:
Over the weekend of April 15, 16, and 17, Reverend Dr. John Dorhauer was installed as the General Minister and President of the United Church of Christ. The installation service, designed to be progressive in nature, was held at churches in New York City, Chicago, and Seattle. Of course, Reverend Dorhauer formerly served as Conference Minister of our Southwest Conference. Please join me in sending best wishes to Reverend Dorhauer and his family.
I am still getting feedback and laughs following our annual Holy Humor celebration on Sunday April 10. This year’s theme was “Hats Off to God,” and we had a wide variety of colorful and unique hats worn in worship that Sunday morning. Emphasizing sacred silliness, we worshiped God giving thanks for the gifts of humor, joy, and all things good. You can check out photos on our United Church Facebook page and page 6 of this Newsletter.
Speaking of the Southwest Conference, the conference annual meeting was the weekend of April 22 and 23. United Church had a full slate of delegates. Attending were Moderator Donna Walter, Past Moderator Rod Aurich, Pastor Susan Aurich, Delegate Nancy Westcott, and I. The theme this year was “Faithfully, Playfully, In Covenant.
The baseball season is underway. I’m sure most of you follow the same three teams that I follow – The World Champion Kansas City Royals, the always-exciting St. Louis Cardinals, and the highly optimistic Arizona Diamondbacks. Now that I think about it, I guess there are some Tigers, Twins, and Red Sox fans, among others, in the congregation. Good luck.
Please keep in prayer all those listed each Sunday in the bulletin and in this newsletter.
I look forward to seeing you soon at worship or any of our upcoming events. See the calendar for all events and details.
