A Green Team?

The past two Mondays, St. Stephen’s co-hosted a Climate Conversation with Delaware Interfaith Power and Light. The intention was for the church to actually host the conversation on-site with vendors, speakers, and lunch gatherings in Trolley Square. Unfortunately, due to COVID, we were unable to host an in-person gathering. Thankfully, through technology, we were able to host using Zoom. This gave us the ability to have speakers from across the country join us and to talk about the current climate/environmental crisis. One does not need to be a scientist to know that God has entrusted us to care for the earth - to care for the work of God’s creation. In the 8th Psalm, after surveying the won

Communion

It's been three months. It's been three months since I last filled up my car's gas tank. It's been three months since I wished I had called the hairdresser on time, instead of putting off my regular trim. It's been three months since I sang with a group of people. It's been three months since I last sat in church to worship. It's been three months since I last had communion. As I've talked and listened to people, that seems to be the one part of church they miss the most: communion. I do miss communion, but the reality is that I've gone through far longer periods without it. I grew up in a church where we had communion at the beginning of each church season, on festival days, and about every

Meditation

I feel like a seven-year-old child. I feel I’m like with my family in the family car, and we’ve made a road trip to California and we’re on the way home. It’s late in the afternoon and I’m tired and bored and cranky. I share the back seat with my siblings who are asleep. This is a good thing, I suppose, because if they weren’t one of us would pick a fight I’d get blamed for starting it and my parents would yell. So I keep asking my parents, “Are we there yet? How long is it going to take? I don’t want to be in this old car anymore.” And then we have to slow down for traffic construction, which is so loud and noisy I can’t even think, and we have to drive really slow because the drivi

Coming Out on the Other Side

I feel like the end is coming. I'm just not sure what it's the end of. We were starting to see the end of the shutdown. I was going to go to the vet's office on Friday and walk in. Nope. I have to call from the car when I get there and wait to be brought in. I was starting to see the end of my to-do list. But then I signed up for several on-line classes, and I decided to learn some new computer programs. My to-do list just keeps growing. I was starting to see the end of my quarantine stitching project. Then I saw how much stitching was involved in one section, and realized it was going to take at least two more weeks than I initially thought. Then I ran out of thread, and the only places to
