A WEEKLY NOTE from our Interim Minister,
Thank you for the opportunity to take some much needed vacation around the 4th of July. We had a wonderful time visiting with Cindy's high school life long friends in the Finger Lakes region near Rochester, NY where she grew up. I had planned to be present last Sunday morning, but our Saturday afternoon flight through Newark was canceled due to weather. Thank you Eric for leading all phases of the worship experience so well.
This Sunday we will begin a series of sermons on the Eight Principles of Progressive Christianity that are put forth by those who network around a belief that faith is ever evolving. Some characterize Progressive Christianity as a willingness to question tradition, acceptance of human diversity, affirmation of all persons being able to serve in leadership roles in the church, a strong emphasis on social justice and care for the poor and the oppressed, and environmental stewardship of the earth. The title of the sermon this Sunday is "Jesus and Beyond."
And yes, while many of us feel like we have a "graduate degree" in progressive faith, I trust a walk through the 8 Principles will help us communicate to others the values we hold individually and at Wash Park UCC.
