• Extending Grace to One Another: These words are adapted from the UCC in Charlotte, VT. They are a beautiful invitation.

As we transition to worship in our buildings, we invite all to meet one another with grace, forgiveness and good communication. We invite us also to give one another permission to set boundaries, observe safety protocols and distance in a way that is comfortable for each. As Paul wrote in Colossians: “Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others, not put them down, not cut them out.”
