Cathy and I want to thank you all for such a warm and gracious welcome. We appreciate all you did to make the parsonage ready, assist in the moving of our belongings, and for the strong summer attendance. We are off to a good start. Cathy and I are very glad to be here.
If you want to contact me, the best way is through the phone at the office 978 658-4519. During office hours your call will be answered. If no one is in the office, you may leave a message for me in my confidential mailbox. You will be given the option of marking the message as "urgent". If you do that, the phone system will send me a text anytime day or night. I will get back to you as soon as I can. There is no longer a landline at that parsonage. You can also call me on my cell phone. If you would like to have that number, I would be pleased to share with you.
The E-mail email@example.com
is best email to use. I do check it every day.
I am planning a fall Bible Study it will meet Tuesday evenings at the church and Wednesday mornings at Windsor Place. We will be working from Evolution of the Word: The New Testament in the Order the Books Were Written
by Marcus Borg. We will start with 1 Thessalonians and end with 2 Peter. This is important because it shows us that the teachings in the New Testament develop over a seventy-year period. Knowing this development gives us the intellectual tools to move beyond a simplistic literalism. You can get the book on your own or we can order it for in the church office. The first session will be Tuesday, September 17 and Wednesday, September 18. You will find a sign-up sheet in the narthex, or you can e-mail office and Susan will add you to the list.
Let us continue to work together to serve Jesus Christ.
Grace and peace
