    March 31: “Go 'Round the Long Way!”

    Two services: 9:30 and 11:15 a.m.

    Worship Leader: Reverend Caitlin O’Brien

    Guest Preacher: Rev. Dr. Claudia Highbaugh

    Do you listen to the news? We get news streaming on our devices all day long, mostly bad news, strange news or gossip that has no relevance to anything in our individual lives. What we get is stress, anxiety, questions. We anticipate worse case scenarios and terrible consequences. This Sunday morning we will "go 'round" and find some ways to contemplate best case ways of living, being, thinking, loving and caring for ourselves, and our people. This hour of time together is the quick start for a new week. We will reach into our sacred life journey to find quiet comfort and inspiration for the week to come.

    Rev. Dr. Highbaugh spent her career serving institutions of higher education, most recently as the Dean of the Office of Religious & Spiritual Life at CT College. In her (new) retirement, she is organizing a civil and human rights learning trip to AL for the Greater New London Clergy Association.
