From the Interim

Good People,

Sometimes the words of a hymn rumble through my head—not so much because I can’t let them go—but because they are just what I need at the moment. This Sunday we will be singing Morning Has Broken when Bobby Butler leads our music, and knowing that, the words have been a part of my thoughts and prayers all week.

“Morning has broken, like that first morning” and I think of those boys and their coach getting out of the cave in Thailand and what it must be like for them to have that first morning light, the  light that comes sneaking through the darkness  to crack the dawn once again. I wonder if they will ever take it for granted again? Surely, morning is breaking for them in a way i anticipate will impact them for the rest of their lives. 

I wonder what it is like for them to hear the birds sing again? Will rainfall ever become something to cherish again?  Hopefully  they will know what it is to praise “God’s recreation of a new day “over and over in a joyful way for the rest of their lives. 

I hope that for all of us. May we each greet each morning’s breath waking the day as another gift, filled with potential and hope. Sometimes that is not easy to do I know. But this Sunday when we sing ”Morning has broken”  all together, I hope we are all renewed with hope and the promise of newness and life.

Blessings, Gale+

Financial Planning Speaker Series

This series, moderated by Karen Van Voorhis, will take place during coffee hour over three Sundays. This is part of St. Paul's ongoing educational efforts in the area of wellness for its parishioners, and an attempt to answer some of the many specific follow-up questions received after the four-part financial wellness series offered last spring. Topics and guest speakers will include: • January 28: Estate Planning: Essential Documents and Preserving Assets, with Natick resident Tricia D'Agostino (http://www.margolis.com/patricia-c-dagostino) • February 4: Senior Housing and Health Care: What's What? (Navigating Options and Costs), with Joan Harris (https://www.symphonycaremanagement.com/) The presenters are all seasoned experts in their fields, and we are lucky that they have generously volunteered their time for our benefit. Please grab a coffee and a snack at coffee hour on these three Sundays and join us for an invaluable education on these topics. See Karen Van Voorhis if you have any questions.
