REFLECTIONS ON A PANDEMIC: WORSHIP SERVICE

It has been seven months since our lives have been upended by COVID-19. So many of us have been challenged—profoundly so—by a crisis unlike any in our lifetimes. Yet challenges can also be times of tremendous growth. How you have been changed? What have you managed to reap? What do you see differently now?

Our worship service on Sunday, October 25th will feature reflections and poetry from Emersonians reflecting on these themes.

If you have a reflection or poem you’d like to share in the worship service (less than 400 words, please), email Rev. Matthew, revmatthew@emersonuuc.org
by |Wednesday, October 20th.
