“Great Day!”– Psalm 96, Luke 7:1-10– May 29, 2016

My grandmother’s birthday was on “Decoration Day.” May 30, 1898. We made an annual pilgrimage to my grandmother’s house in South Jersey on Decoration Day, and went to the cemetery, where we put flowers on family graves (That was also the day we flipped her mattress). Decoration Day began as a tribute to Civil War veterans, and then evolved into …

Sunday Supper 22 May 2016

Sunday Suppers at Second Congo

SUNDAY SUPPER: Each week we welcome folks eager for a hot meal and companionship. Started by members of Second Congregational Church, which has two supper making teams, the Robins (also known as the Roaring Chickens) and the Bluebirds, Sunday Supper now has teams from various other local faith communities who also take turns providing the supper, either cooking in the Second Congo kitchen or bringing an already prepared meal. On Sunday May 22, some half dozen baked hams, two large casseroles of sweet potatoes, 4 ½ pounds of fresh beans, and a big bowl of cole slaw were prepared by eight Second Congo members and enjoyed by 45 people, including nine Second Congo folks. Chocolate layer cake made by Dara was a delicious dessert, accompanied by tea and coffee. Guests helped clear tables and put away tables and chairs. read more

“Not Who but How”- Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31, John 16:12-15– May 22, 2016

I want to talk about God this morning. Not that we don’t talk about God every Sunday morning. It’s just that Trinity Sunday gives us an excuse to talk about this God whom we earlier affirmed that Cameron and Neely are children of, an excuse to continue the conversation begun centuries ago by our forefathers and mothers in faith. I …

“Everyone Could Hear”– Acts 2:1-21– May 15, 2016 -–Pentecost

The pictures from Fort McMurray, Alberta are hellish–at least the stereotypical images of hell–flames, smoke, wrecks of trees and structures, people terrified and crying, their faces smeared with soot; the tongues of fire merciless in their destruction. And then the images from Oklahoma and the south this week, where tornadoes have raged through community after community, their mighty winds hurling …

“Freedom for One–Freedom for All”– Acts 16:16-34, John 17:20-26–May 8, 2016

When Julia Ward Howe and other women first declared a “Mother’s Day” in the mid-19th century, it was rooted in social activism and peace advocacy, lifting up the bond between mothers on all sides of war and conflict whose sons were being used as “cannon fodder.” “No more!” these mothers cried. These women saw themselves as “social and political activists …

“At Home in You”- Revelation 21:10, 22-22:5, John 14:23-29 — May 1, 2016

  Some of you know that Bruce and I drove down to North Carolina over the school break to visit with my mom for a few days. At 96, she is still living in her own home, though with the support of a wonderful community, and while she’s cut down her daily walks from 6 miles to 2 , and …



SPRING CLEAN-UP MORNING. Congregation members spent the morning of Saturday April 30 readying the church grounds for summer, while inside others cleaned the sanctuary. Mike Day, Bruce Smith, Hamilton Topping, George French, Sid Russell, Doug Krause, Bill and Linda Lyons, David Adams and Lorna Cheriton brought rakes, shovels, and tarps; they raked the old thatch and gravel from the lawns; swept winter gravel off the parking lot, trimmed bushes, renewed mulch, weeded, and picked up branches and junk outside. Inside Eric Webster, NancyJean and Maggie Briggs cleaned the sanctuary. George and Grace Sohn had previously cleaned the stainless steel kitchen sinks until they shone. read more
