Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ! One of the great pleasures of serving for years in the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ was making music with a good friend, saxophonist Willie Sordillo. Part of a group we gathered together to perform music by the band U2, we shared with congregations around the state the songs that celebrated good news with its origins in scripture. Many of you are probably familiar with their song “40,” though you may not have known with certainty that its lyrics come from Psalm 40. Thanks to Dave Quinby for saying yes to playing it with me for our worship tomorrow as we look at the things that sometimes challenge and sometimes bolster our faith. Faith can be slippery and our assurance often rocked. So, we are invited to come together for mutual uplifting and communal conversation around the subjects that concern us. See you in church!
Blessings and peace, Lisa
