For this congregation, the between-times are over. They are really over. We've had a 27 month period between settled ministers. We've had two interim ministers for a total of 19 months, and 8 months in the past three summers when we had no minister at all and it was "just us."
And now we begin again. The newly ordained and newly married Rev. Ilene Tompkins-Gillispie has arrived among us to begin what may be a long ministry. She’s going to marry some of us and bless our babies, and bury some of us, and give us the gifts of her presence, her wisdom and her sermons. She’s going to walk beside us, sing beside us, and dance with us. She’s going to sit with us, grieve with us, and challenge us. Sometimes she may disappoint us. And sometimes we may disappoint her. And we know, from what we learned in the between-times, things will change around here.
This month's theme: Beginnings
