    Yes, God exists, is present, created all that we know, wants us to be in relationship, and all of this is because God first loved us. Thank You, Lord.

    Awakened at 6:43 to rumblings, scraping noises on the roof above my bedroom. The old shingles are being removed so the new ones can be installed. A surprise on a Sunday morning.

    Still can’t drive. I have a stick shift car and my right leg is still not doing 100%. So even if I knew which church to attend I could not. Any suggestions on church choice? I attended a Methodist Church that I enjoyed somewhat except never felt accepted there. Now new pastor and not sure I like where he has led the church.
    Prayers and blessings for all members of our little UR community

    Yes, may we all experience anew God’s great yes to us and may this yes set us free!

    Grateful for family to celebrate father’s day a week earlier as a few of them are going away for church camp.

    Blessings to all!
