Union Church

Peace and presence by the sea…

Union Church is an interdenominational Christian church that welcomes those who wish to journey with us as we seek to receive and follow God’s sacred spirit and the ethical teachings of Jesus Christ. We are an evolving community of faith that seeks to reflect the love and compassion of God through our conduct. We follow the teaching of Jesus to love God, neighbor, and self. We have reverence for Earth and all living creatures. We are a worshiping community that gathers to give thanks and to celebrate the Holy Presence of God in all things. We welcome all visitors.


Dear Friends of Union Church,

I hope this finds you healthy and warm as we welcome light snow this morning. I know some of you will be reading this from your homes in warmer parts of our country, so we ask that you please send a little  warmth and light this way!  The daylight hours are slowly lengthening as we begin the month of February.  For many, that is a sign of hope as we move towards springtime.  I understand that the Groundhog did predict more weeks of winter, so we shall see.  As the French Philosopher Albert Camus once wrote, “In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.  And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”

This month, we will not publish a traditional monthly newsletter.

Those of you on the Moderator’s email distribution list will be receiving instead, a brief overview of some of the accomplishments of the last month. (Web page readers can read this overview below as the E-Newsletter for February.) We hope to publish a newsletter on a quarterly or seasonal basis as we look ahead to the coming year.

I wish you every blessing for the days ahead.  If I may be of assistance to you or your family in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Wishing you peace and joy,

Paula

Your faithful Pastor
