A Time to Come Together - For One Another and for Creation: Saturday at Old South Church and Trinity Church in Copley Square

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

Thanks be to God for all the ways our congregations, pastors, chaplains, and members have responded to the tragic events of Marathon Monday.  Hearing your stories, and alongside you in ministry, I have been moved to tears many times.  Your prayerful, deliberate, creative efforts are part of repairing the world (Tikkun Olam) – and I can only imagine God celebrating each initiative!
 
On Saturday faithful Christians including denominational leaders will gather at Old South Church at 10am for a Climate Revival.  We will be guided by the story of Lazarus (John 11:1-49) – a story that has as much pastoral significance for those affected by the marathon bombings as it presents hope for all of us affected by the climate crisis.  You can find details here: macucc.org/climaterevival
 
Despite the compelling demands on all our ministries these past eight days, we are going forth with the Climate Revival in recognition that as people of faith, we can make as much of a difference in renewing creation as we have in responding to Boston’s crisis. 
 
Faithfully – and in the hope of seeing you on Saturday,
 
Jim
