    Is there more to this than is shown here? I am at a loss as to where the connection to the Christian tradition is found within this session. It has been many years since I have had the opportunity to attend any functions at our Tatamagouche facility. Has it been turned into a rentable/useable space for general use by any group that needs the facility be they secular or from other faiths? Perhaps if the UCC and this Conference in particular were to stand back and revisit our call as a Christian entity we might not be in the troubles we have found ourselves involved in. Isn,t it time we started serving God again and let the people we minister to know they also are called to His table as opposed to just throwing the doors open and putting their rent in our coffers?
