Setting a Larger Table

On Thanksgiving, it is customary to display gratitude for the many sources of our sustenance that lie beyond our direct control, whether it be the rough hands that mill our wheat, or the warm sunshine that grows our food.  In this way, gratitude is an expression of our conviction that all of humanity shares a single destiny.  Hence while many of the stories we tell about Thanksgiving are horrifically flawed, the better ones reflect a uniquely human and humane attempt to imagine ever larger and more diverse tables, with sustenance enough for everyone.  In worship this morning, we celebrate the sustaining powers of this conviction. 

Attend in worship in person at the Barn at Stratford, or online (link provided below). We are worshiping at  the Barn at Stratford while our building is under construction. The Barn at Stratford is operated by the Delaware County Historical Society. It is located just nine minutes from our church building, just South of Delaware in the community of Stratford. It is immediately north from the junction of routes 315 and 23.   The address of the barn is 2690 Stratford Road, Delaware, OH 43015.  While we will miss our beautiful building, the Barn provides a comfortable, historic temporary space that supports all of our regular Sunday morning activities. Please join us! Worship begins at 10:30 AM, with coffee and fellowship time to follow worship. To attend online:

Susan Ritchie (she, her, hers) is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
