Homecoming: Make New Friends and Keep the Old – Rev. Roberta Finklestein
At the start of a new ‘church’ year all of us will, in the words of the old camp song, make new friends and keep the old. That is what Homecoming is about. The old friends will be there: beginning the service on the lawn, processing into the sanctuary, reciting the names of those now departed. The new will include the formal introduction of several new staff members, a Reflection For All Ages, and a number of mini-homilies about what this community of faith is looking forward to in the year ahead.
