A Message from our Guest Preacher, Rev. Joan Newton O’Gorman
Dear members and friends of Richmond Congregational Church, United Church of Christ ~ BC (before Covid19), the month of August would be a time of continuing preparation and coordination for the start-up of Sunday School and faith formation opportunities for people of all ages. May we please use this Sunday as an opportunity to share with each other some responses to these questions:
Who has helped to shape your faith? Parents? A teacher, coach, camp counselor?
Where are those places that have inspired you? A cathedral or a summer camp? A mission trip or a youth retreat?
What sustains your faith? Reading scripture? Singing and playing music? Silence and meditation?
I will share a brief reflection about Mrs. Meschler, my landlady in Brooklyn. I was 12 years old when we first met and the stories of her faith, family and resilience shaped me in ways I am still understanding. Let’s meet on Sunday in that place where we inspire, support and guide each other in our faith journeys sharing the stories from scripture and our own lives that have shaped and formed us. Peace, Joan
