SO, I will be gone for a couple of weeks of much needed R & R with Sarah. We will be hitting the road to Florida and back. I want to thank you all for this opportunity. Sarah and I have not had time like this for a very long time and the opportunity to spend time together without the hecticness of our usual life is a blessing--particularly for a couple of weeks.
Before I go, I want to say once again how blessed I am to be your minister. You may be a small group, but the what we accomplish is remarkable. Everyone is finding a little niche and doing what they feels right to them, and there is nothing more powerful in a church than that.
I particularly want to thank the board, Joe, Barbara, Jill and Kelli, for their dedication to overseeing the material well-being of the church. And to Gary for his long time efforts in a hundred different ways. And to Andrea for stepping into help out with music. I guess I could, and should be thanking everyone individually... suffice to say that everything happens at NCUC through a community effort, and that is what church is all about.
We are blessed as a little church to have such members. So I hope you will take time in the early part of the New Year, to count your own blessings. We are a church that is small in membership but huge in heart. Let's make it our resolution to let the world know that.
Blessings, and peace and energy to you all.
Rev. Ben Fowler
On this page I will occasionally make entries which will speak to the good works of the our church, to the spirit of our members or just to make observations about the nature of the spirit and life as I see it. Please make comments and add your own thoughts.
