We’ve been through so much this summer, including welcoming the return of Greenwood Music Camp with five consecutive services in July and August, a full Friday Night Cafe season (including a July 2nd Contra Dance!), and hosting two art installations as part of the Cultural District public arts project.
This Sunday’s Service on the Hill felt like a culmination of all these wonderful efforts. It was a true joy to be back in the presence of Stephen Philbrick after his leave of absence and hear his sermon, to enjoy all the music and Sarah’s weaving of history and other themes, and to welcome pastor Penn Clark from New York
State. Steve wrote afterwards, “It was the best service on the hill I’ve ever been to.”
Thank you all for the tremendous work and cooperation it takes our small but plucky church community to pull all of these activities together and to do them well! Our collective efforts are appreciated by the greater community.
I would also like to personally thank you all for how meaningful this summer has been to me. I find this work provides much of its own reward, and I hope you do as well.
