The Villager Voice ~ from Alan

The Rev. Amy Lignitz Harken is pastor at the Mattapoisett, MA Congregational Church.  Amy wrote a reflection for the new year (see link below) I think is a worthy read.  For what it’s worth, I don’t agree with everything she wrote here – specifically, I don’t agree that prosperity is a zero-sum game, that my prospering means someone else gets less – but I love her way with words, and I appreciate enough of her thought to get past the places I diverge.  

Give her a read and let me know what you think:
