I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. Whether you choose to show up physically at Follen, or virtually at our Zoom worship, we can all do the “something that we can do” by being in solidarity and acting upon our values.
Join Rev. Claire, DRE Beryl Aschenberg, and Music Coordinator Shaylor Lindsay on Zoom as we open a new church year like none other. Our September worship theme is “Home” and while we won’t be in our physical spiritual home, we hope you all will come together in one massive Ingathering Service from our many homes.
In the midst of the chaos and changing realities of the pandemic, what actions and practices give us strength to rise, and hope to keep moving forward? Our Director of Religious Education, Beryl Aschenberg, has invited several Follen folk, from middle school to retirement ages, to reflect on this question. Please join Delia Tsouvales, Henri Engstrom, Ben Horsburgh, Jody Gray-Linden, Karen Watson and Beryl as they share what is helping them get through this disorienting time. The order of service is here. Submit Joys and Sorrows here. Ingathering is Sunday, September 13!
