Did you know that 3 Allin Church folks serve on the Massachusetts UCC's Immigration and Refugee Task Force? Here's Joanne Dickey and Judy Raymond leading a game to help people understand the realities of immigration. They'll be doing this workshop at Old South Church in Boston soon. I'm proud of the ways this church is learning about the world around us, and seeking to follow Christ.

Join us for Sunday Worship @ 9:45am with One Room Schoolhouse & Nursery Care. Fellowship immediately following the workshop. July 23rd; Scripture: Psalm 86:11-17; Sermon Title: A Prayer for the Conflicted

Finally—it’s summer! I’m getting my sandal tan, waking up early to water the garden, and making plans for my one big trip this summer. How are you spending these first summer days? In church, we pay attention to time, and seasons—it’s tied up with our spiritual practices. We take care to reflect and confess during Lent, as we remember Jesus’ long walk to the cross. We prepare our hearts and our homes during Advent as we wait for Christ to be born. We celebrate the coming of the light during Epiphany (12 days after Christmas, and in the very middle of the dark nights of winter). This season after Pentecost—do you know what it’s called? Ordinary time. That’s it’s official church name: the season of Ordinary Time. During these days, we remember that Christ is with us always—not just when we’re preparing for a big change, or getting ready for a holiday, or sitting worshipfully in church. This summer—this “ordinary time”—some of you will go away (to Vermont, to Maine, to your house on the Cape, to any number of fabulous places). Some of you will stay right here, enjoying a different rhythm than during the school year. Some of you will be gardening, or lounging by the pool, or digging into summer reading. Some of you will come faithfully to church every Sunday, and some of you we won’t see till September. And Christ will be with each one of us, every where we go, and every thing we do. So let’s try to remember that. Here’s one way—I introduced this during Children’s Sunday (the kids helped me plan it, and I always love their creative ideas and new ways to show God to us). I’ve printed out a bunch of outlines of Jesus. Pick one up at church any Sunday! Each of us will decorate this “flat Jesus” however we want. We’ll be creative with how we design his clothes, what color we make his skin, what materials we use (sequins, anyone?) We’ll bring “flat Jesus” with us this summer, as a tangible reminder of Christ with us. We’ll take pictures of him. If you send pictures to the office—or, better yet, post them to the church Facebook page we’ll share them with your church family (you can even text me photos at 423-863-8251—nothing would make me happier than periodically receiving pictures of flat Jesus hanging out with you and your family!) We’ll print some out to display in the stage room, put some on the Facebook page, and use them to stay connected with each other. I’ll be gone for the first week of July, and I’ll bring Flat Jesus with me. First, I’ll be in Baltimore at the United Church of Christ General Synod—it’s the national gathering of representatives from our denomination. I’ll be meeting other ministers and church members, participating in workshops and discussions about church life, and more. You can bet on seeing a few pictures of me and Flat Jesus at worship, networking lunches, and in plenary sessions. Then, Flat Jesus will come with Ashley and I to my family reunion in New Hampshire—you’ll be able to see Flat Jesus sleeping in a tent, hanging out with my Great Aunt Ruth and Great Uncle Myron, and reading good books on the dock. If you stay home, making trips to the library and working in your garden, Jesus is with you. If you visit your family, Jesus if with you. If you end up in the hospital, Jesus is with you (and Cheryl and I will come to visit and only take pictures of Flat Jesus with you if you explicitly permit us). Every place we go is holy; every thing we do has the capacity to be filled with God’s spirit. Whatever we do this summer, I hope that we will know that God is with us. Love, Lindsay
