If you judge a meeting by its agenda, September’s board meeting did not appear to have blockbuster potential.
Greetings from your Board of Trustees, who are digging into the work of the new board year with virtual meetings and real-life excitement about the board goals we have agreed upon for this year.
Colorado weather has always been a little chaotic, and 2020 has brought all kinds of talk of us living in end times, but this week’s start of ash falling from the sky one day followed immediately by snow falling was next level apocalypse.
I am still feeling all the feelings from our water communion week! It was so wonderful to see your faces in the videos – and some of you in person at the few sites I was able to get to! It reminded me of how powerful it can be to find ways to both experience the familiar traditions as we move into the fall, yet also make space for innovation and creativity.
We are excited to share that you are now able to see your pledge progress online! Gone are the days of having to wait for us to reach out to you or having to call the office and wait for someone to call you back!
Join us this Sunday, August 23, 2020 as we kick off our new series, Re-opening (Your Heart)
You do not want to miss out on the opportunity to bid on the wonderfully creative and thoughtful donations that have been offered by members of our congregation. This is also a great way to connect, have fun and support the work of our church.
It doesn’t really feel like August, does it? August usually means back to school shopping, finding out where you sit and how your classroom will be set up. Or if you’re not connected to school, August often means preparing for fall trips or projects. But this year…what does August mean?
If you aren’t connected personally with schools right now, it may not have seemed like a big and heavy week. But get a real check in with any local students, parents, teachers, staff or people who love any of these types and you’ll quickly get to the impossible question of what to do about school.
So many of our usual markers of time and the patterns that we have followed have been transformed or lost entirely in the pandemic. We have to be newly intentional in claiming a sense of time’s passing, and to honor the shifting of the seasons, the losses and the achievements both big and small.
