A Word from the Board
 

Hello Beloved Church –

As we process the news we received from our outgoing Pastor Yael, I just wanted to share a few things with you.

It is sad to lose a wonderful leader like Pastor Yael Lachman. I hope we can enjoy every minute we have with her and be grateful for the time she’s given to us over the last few years. I am so grateful for the gifts she has given our congregation. She will continue to be a blessing to us over these next few months. 

As we move through this process I am reminded of Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8, “for everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven…” There is a time for our sorrow about our pastor’s decision to move on, but there is also a time for joy in reflecting about her time with us. There will also be time for joy in the journey towards calling a new pastor. 

Please continue to be the church. Reach out to each other. Pray, laugh and sigh. 


Blessings to you all.
Love,
Sally

Who Quickens the Dead

 

Who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. —Romans 4.17, King James Version

 

As if
dealing with the living
were not enough.

As if
we were ready
for what we have
released
and grieved

to suddenly wake,
open its eyes,
and turn its face
toward us again.

As if
we believed
the hand that
wakes the dead
could wake us.

As if
the voice
that calls
into being
what does not exist
could call to us.

As if
we could let it.
