From June 30-July 4, over 2,500 people gathered in Baltimore for the 31st General Synod of the United Church of Christ for worship, fellowship and formal church business and I was privileged to be a visitor.
On June 16-17 delegates Karen Bernardo, Christina and David Oliver, Susan and Bob Hoffman, Rev. Ann Abernethy and Rev. Laura Gronberg attended the historic Massachusetts Conference, United Church of Christ, 218th Annual Meeting in Hartford, CT.
Although we’ve changed the name and time, our purpose remains the same: to gather in fellowship and explore the wholeness to which God calls us (that means everything from summer vacation plans, to resources for aging, to faith discussions). In July, our special guest will be our new Pastoral Resident, Eric Ogi. Come to meet him and hear a bit about his faith journey.
