Mark Nepo observes that when we are “left with feeling what was and what is. . we call the difference loss.” But he goes on to say there is more: what’s new, the possibilities. Every transition comes because there is change; the question is how can we respond to change and create transformation. What are the possibilities to be revealed and discovered for FPC? Our time together, like every transition you make in your own lives, will require some packing and unpacking. It takes honesty and insight, but it can also be a blessing. Bring your backpack, your briefcase, your tote, your lunch bag, your medical bag — whatever you carry with you in this world — for our “Blessing of Backpacks and Bags.”
Our service will also include speaking a covenant between the congregation and Rev. Susan.
Worship Associate: Melissa O’Connell
