Message from Rev. Herb Taylor
Hello from Herb,
With the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on Monday, our prayers are with the people of France. The destruction of perhaps the best known and most visited place of worship in the world brings sadness to us all. But it is important to remember, especially during this Holy Week, that this building was more than about stone and wood. It is an iconic image of a permanence and durability - a faithfulness, that no fire can destroy. Notre Dame will be rebuilt, because in a world that too often lacks the beauty, peace and inspiration we all need to thrive, people will respond with passion to help it rise up from the ashes.
During this Holy Week, as we share in the passion of Christ, and then in the glory of Easter, each of us is called to re-commit ourselves to a faith that inspires us to rise up again and again to be who we are created to be. To remember our true identity which nothing can destroy or take away. In that spirit, I hope you can join with me at our Easter worship services at 9:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. (we also have a Holy Thursday service tonight at 7:00 p.m.) and look forward to continuing to celebrate together God’s call for our lives. Also remember that we will have an Easter Sunrise Service at 6:30 a.m. on Cambridge Common and our Easter potluck breakfast at 10a.m.
As is the tradition of our church, I invite you to join me in giving a “second-mile” gift during the Easter season to our ministry together. This year your special Easter gift will provide funds for the complete refurbishment of our kitchen and our ministry with university students (who, along with many others, will make good use of the new kitchen!). A functional and beautiful kitchen will be an outward and visible sign of the love and hospitality our church shines with throughout the year.
Please bring your special Easter offering to church or, if you can’t be with us on Easter, mail in your gift or give through our website at www.he-umc.org . Give generously knowing your commitment to our church’s ministry brings alive the promise of Easter and ensures that generations to come will feel blessed by our ministry. Thank you for all you do to help the love of God to rise up through our church’s ministry. See you in church.
Yours in Christ
