Sunday Worship July 17, 2022

The summer is a busy time, and so I invite you to join us in worship so that you may breathe deeply of God’s Spirit, present when we gather in Jesus’ name!  I am grateful for my time away, because when I am on Lake Megunticook there is a kind of a continuum of time in which all eras of my life are present, seamlessly.  Much that I would call spiritual feels more readily accessibly to me and I find myself praying more hopefully.  My prayer now is that we may bring such hope to each other and the expectation that we will meet the Holy Spirit when we seek God in one another.  If that sounds like a tall order, I invite you to pay particular attention to the lessons we read in Colossians and in Luke this week.  From descriptions of who Jesus may be, even to the incredulous, to a depiction of how we might be, in service to others, we have a lot to learn and a lot to celebrate.

Then, at 2:00 p.m., you are invited to gather a second time in worship and celebration, this time at the Parsonage (between the Camden National Bank and the Town Hall). Please know that you may park at the Camden National Bank, the Town Hall or the library as well as at the church, with none of them a long walk from the front lawn.  You may also park on either Main or Union Streets, but please do not park at the Inn.   We will be joined by clergy from the Sunrise Association of the Maine Conference of the United Church of Christ as well as members of our Conference staff as we celebrate my installation (Pastor Lisa J. Durkee) with the help of our various music groups under the direction of Ann Boudreaux.  Friends from the Committee on Ministry will offer the message and the charge to the congregation.  This is an exciting time in the life of the church and I hope many will join us!
