"All ingredients need salt. The noodle or tender spring pea would be narcissistic to imagine it already contained within its cell walls all the perfection it would ever need. We seem, too, to fear that we are failures at being tender and springy if we need to be seasoned. It's not so: it doesn't reflect badly on pea or person that either needs help to be most itself." - Tamar Adler, An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace

Sunday, February 12, 2017 – Special Congregational Meeting: A brief congregational meeting will be called after worship to consider suspending our Constitution for a time. It has not been amended since September 29, 1991, and although it has served us well for many years, it is clearly out of date and no longer works for us as well as it did 26 years ago. Since we are fewer in number, we would like to open membership on boards and committees to include people who have worshiped with us for a significant period and who have demonstrated their commitment to us by contributing to the life of our congregation in meaningful ways. Constitution will be suspended only for a time so that we can see what does work for our congregation and to incorporate that understanding in a revised document.
The nominating committee will consist of Sarah Staats and Carol McCollough. Please be in touch with them if you are interested in serving Christ Congregation in some way.
Also This Sunday, Reports from Chairs of Boards and Committes are due to Jeff Hoffman via email - firstname.lastname@example.org
Wednesday, February 22nd, 7:30 p.m. - Church Council will meet at the church.
Friday, February 24th, 6:30 p.m. - Book Club will meet in the home of the Hardgroves to discuss Rooster Street with the author Janet Purcell. Please notice and share the date and time change.
February 26, 2017 – The Annual Congregational Meeting will be held after worship. A simple meal will be served.
