light chalice 211:00 a.m. – Service:   Reflections on Relighting Our Chalice, led by Minister Justin McCreary

I remember as a child helping my grandfather cut his lawn. It wasn’t a regular lawn–rather it was multi-acre lawn set on West Virginia hills. I would cut the sections too steep for him to cut with his tractor with a push mower. When we would finish, I would just sit with my grandparents on their front porch swing, tired, and seeking renewal of body and spirit…with a coke and an oatmeal cream pie. I often wish I could go back to those days when renewal seemed so easy to come by. Now it seems to require scheduling for self-care, deliberate planning to revive my soul. If you are like me, where do we go from here? Come this Sunday and I will give you my thoughts.
