Simon’s Says

I’m not sure what I enjoy most about my Friday morning Coffice Hours in the center of town.  Seeing faces that have become familiar over these many many mornings.  Watching Chester slowly awaken.  Enviously eyeing runners as they pass by, recalling the days I was among their number.  Hearing and seeing the birds as they glide lazily on the thermals created by the nearby river.  Service trucks making their early morning deliveries.  Random – and not-so-random – conversations that range all over the place:  politics, the morning’s news, local music and theater, church (occasionally), and on this glorious morning, everyone’s favorite topic, the weather.  Part of this morning’s conversation was actually about you:  the incredible variety of ways members of our congregation are involved in the community.  These are enjoyable conversations, all the more so as I have them, as I had my breakfast, al fresco.  So remember, you are always more than welcome to join me on Friday mornings for coffee and conversation, and on these summer days I’m pretty easy to spot, just stand in the center of town, and let your gaze sweep across the corner of Main and Water Streets, then take a glance toward the corner of Spring.  Unless the rain has driven me indoors, you’ll be sure to find me.

This Sunday we’re going to talk about Pride of the LGBTQ sort, and hope you can be with us.  And remember, beginning next Sunday July 3 we will worship at 9 am.
