A Note From Pastor Joanne
Viewing the images of the flood waters and rescue attempts happening in Houston for our sisters and brothers, human and non-human, two thoughts repeat for me. One is the memory of being surrounded by raging waters in my home in Lafayette during our flood of 2013 (could it possibly be four years ago already??) before we evacuated. The other thought is about the stories you have told as the folks that call yourselves UCC Longmont engaged in restoration work and ministry of all kinds after that flood. Natural disasters and other losses in life have universal threads that bind us together in compassion and love, that bind us together in Christ, whether we recognize Christ or not.
