From the Desk of Pastor Jason Stitt

January, 2020 


While Pastor Jason is on medical leave, our Office Administrator, Sue submitted this:  


During storms, emperor penguins huddle for warmth, taking turns at the center and on the perimeter of the group. While incubating eggs, up to 6,000 male penguins have been observed clustering for shelter against the harsh Antarctic winter. Partially grown chicks gather in protective “crèches” (French for “cribs”); often surrounded by a colony of adults, these groupings ward off predators and cold.


In stormy times, humans also need supportive groups; we can’t survive alone. A church family allows us to take turns giving and receiving care. Amid social upheaval, injustice, illness, natural disaster and any loss or crisis, God invites us to gather for protection and warmth. In the church community, we support and strengthen one another and are empowered to go out again into the less-sheltered world.


Your church,  St. Paul United Church of Christ , is there for you.  Come and enjoy the warmth, protection and support it provides.


Sue
