This is our first live service since March 15, 2020. It is time to welcome one another back to our church home, back among friends and acquaintances who share our vision for beloved community. Our traditional coming home service is usually at the end of August, but we weren’t quite ready then. If you were able to go someplace during the pandemic, you are encouraged to bring water from your destination; or you could just bring tap water from home if that’s where you stayed. In addition, I would like to talk about water in general—its disappearance in many locations, including the United States. I am hoping we can share a water communion.
