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.

From Your Pastor…

What a beautiful time to enjoy the coast of Maine.  As we head into these summer months, I am really looking forward to my first summer at Union Church.  Every season is special, but I know that the Summer Speaker Series and a church picnic in August with our entire community will truly be highlights.  I hope that each of you may find time for joy, rest, relaxation and spiritual nourishment in these days ahead.  It is a time to allow ourselves to be replenished in mind, body and spirit, and I hope you allow yourselves to follow your bliss, as Joseph Campbell once said in his amazing PBS series on The Power of Myth.  I trust that most of us know some of the ways we can renew ourselves and thus we are invited to carve out special moments to provide the time for  those rich opportunities.  Perhaps too, we may say yes to something new in the months ahead…new friendships, a new experience, new reading.  They often say that trying something new can bring happiness to us.

Many of you have given tirelessly to important activities and events at our church and I, as your Pastor, continue to be inspired by the ways in which you share your gifts, your hospitality, and your compassion with me, with one another, and with our neighbors near and far.  Thank you for what you have done to enrich the life of our church and thank you to those who will continue to share your efforts to help our Summer Speaker Series be a success.

Blessings to each of you and to your community of friends and family.  May we continue to walk together in faith and love.

Peace and joy,

Paula
