A Blessing to Live Here

COMMON GROUND REFLECTIONS … is  a weekly one minute video blog featuring the people and places of Maritime Conference. Gathered by: Janice MacLean, Conference Minister for Christian Nurture & Enrichment   Each morning I drive by the chestnut tree on my way to my office in the Maritime Conference Centre. And I remember that the soil at the base of the tree was gathered from pastoral charges all across the conference. It is our Common Ground. It is a powerful symbol of our ministry in this place. In this blog I offer one minute...

On the Mountain

I’ve been using the UCC liturgy for the Season of Creation, this year. Every year for the last six years,I’ve thought to myself, “That would be fun to do!” and every year the fall season is upon me faster than I’d anticipated, and I wind up putting the Season of Creation ideas aside, and sticking with the lectionary readings. So I have to say I’m giving myself a bit of a pat on the back this year for jumping right in.

Time Out

I’m back after four weeks of vacation,  and in all honesty I will say that it was more stressful than you’d  normally expect, for vacation time.  Don’t get me wrong- there was good stuff going on, including family time, time away, time camping-   but there was stress involved, too. The first week was spent here at home, with a houseful of people. People I love. But I have lived on my own for almost twenty years, and having a houseful of people, no matter how dear they are, was exhausting.  The second week of my...
