I invite my friends and family at United Christian Parish to enjoy this special Pentecost Offering in Song by the College of Regional Ministers (including yours truly). May the reconciling power and love of the Holy Spirit renew each of us, our congregations, our nation and world! Blessed Pentecost!
SCAM ALERT! Warning to UCP members! This morning I got an email supposedly from Marilyn Silvey, who is out of town. The person asked me to buy $400 worth of Itunes Gift Cards for her relative who's having a birthday, then scratch off the silver strip and give "Marilyn" the numbers. "Marilyn" would supposedly pay me back the $400 once she got back in town. This is a SCAM! Please be careful if you get an email from [email protected].
He has risen
Happy Easter to you all!
I may be a retired vampire, but some things never die. I hope others remember there's a huge shortage. 4,000 blood drives nationally were canceled this week. There are places you can donate if you are healthy. We are all in this together! www.inovablood.org
Please consider supporting United Christian Parish Preschool by dining out at Glory Days tonight! Simply dine-in or carry-out at any Glory Days location, save your itemized receipt (not credit card receipt) and submit it to the church office attn: preschool fundraiser. 10% of the sales we generate will be contributed to the preschool’s scholarship fund. You’ll be cooking enough next week—take tonight off! See you there! 🍔🥗🍕
Thank you to everyone who welcomed me this morning! What an amazing community you have built!
Blessed beauty of nature!
The word for March 7 is Wander. One of my favorite places to wander is the grounds of Weston Priory in Weston, VT. I never take a walk there but I am refreshed and invigorated. It is a very peaceful place.

Day 18: Advent Devotion

❄️On this snow day, take a few moments to join Pastor Beth in today's devotion.

The news, the busyness of the season...sometimes it can be hard to pause and focus on God.
We want to help you ready your heart for the gift that God gives us at Christmas by inviting you to spend quiet time in reflection and prayer through our Advent prayer stations.
Advent prayer stations are set up on what we call "Advent Quiet Days." They are self-guided with instructions at each station.
They are being offered today and Thursday (Dec. 15 & 17), from 9 AM-9 PM.

For everyone's safety, we want to make sure we limit the number of people inside at a time, and we also need to make sure we know who has been in the building. Therefore, there are two quick, but important, steps to take before coming by:
1. Pick a time slot: https://bit.ly/34x7aEf
2. Register your attendance: https://bit.ly/3mkEAf9

Day 17: Advent Devotion

“I heard someone say just recently, though, that during Advent, God is also waiting – waiting for us step up to what we say we believe, to finally commit to acting and being and living in ways that will make God’s dream reality. It’s not that it’s completely up to us to make it all happen, but that God wants us to be a part of the process, not observers.”

Take a few minutes to join Jerry in devotion:
