Sermon by Stephanie Gannon, Intern Minister
We gather this Sunday to celebrate Thanksgiving with our annual harvest communion service of bread and cider. Stephanie Gannon, our Intern Minister, will be offering the homily. She describes her reflections for Sunday in this way:
"When we strip down communion of its perhaps fraught historical and theological vestiges, we're left with the notion that it's fundamentally about community. What does it mean to welcome not just the stranger to the Table, but our own fullest selves?"
Following the service, we’ll share a potluck Thanksgiving Dinner in Workman Hall. All are welcome, and everyone is encouraged to bring a dish to share.
If I don’t see you this weekend, may you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with all the things you cherish—and a heart full of gratitude for life’s gifts.
In faith and love,
