A Message from Rev. Maya Landell (January 8, 2021)

A New Year. We start this year in the tension between waiting and newness. I am grateful for the videos from our Visioning/Strategic Planning Committee that are helping us understand change, context of church, and encouraging us as a congregation to look outward. You can find all the videos here on our website, as well as the Advent devotionals and questions if you missed them throughout the season. Lastly, while we are trying to prepare ourselves spiritually for the season ahead, I wanted to share this sermon by Shannon Kershner, Pastor at Fourth Presbyterian Church in Chicago. It was written in the wait of the election results, but feels fitting as we wait on schools returning, vaccination availability and lower COVID case counts.

Christ’s light continues to guide us all in this season of Epiphany,
Rev. Maya
