Sermon by Chris Wulff.
As we take up June's theme of "Revelry," we will have the pleasure this Sunday of hearing from our Seminarian Chris Wulff before he and Ariel Hunt-Brondwin move to Victoria, where Chris will serve as the Intern Minister for the next two years. Before they leave, it will be my honour to lead the congregation in dedicating their new son Rowan on Sunday morning during the service.
Later Sunday afternoon, we'll celebrate the tremendous accomplishment thus far of our Syrian Refugee Project, which has now brought five families to the safety and stability of a new life in Canada. It is right that we pause to revel this powerful work we, as a congregation, have done over the past year.
Finally, it was such a great joy to welcome Rev. Lynn Harrison to First Unitarian last Sunday, when it was announced that she will serve, starting in mid-August, as our new Minister of Community Engagement. Lynn brings wonderful gifts to us, and I am truly thrilled at the opportunity we have to work together as a ministry team. My deepest thanks to everyone who raised their financial commitment to help make this effort to increase First's impact possible.
In faith and love,
On this Friends of NVT Sunday donations may be made to that social justice project.
