We give thanks...

for the beauty of spring-time and for the hope of fruitful growth in our gardens and our lives.

In this ongoing Easter season, many of the scripture readings continue to speak of the new commandment of Jesus:  "I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13: 34-35 (NRSV).

      The scriptures use varied imagery to illuminate what this love is like and how it originates in and flows to and through us from God, who is love (I John 4:16).  During the fifth Sunday potluck this past week, people shared some of the ways God's love is known to them through our varied senses and we want to share them with you. 

God's love looks like:  a cloud that enfolds me; a smile; friends enjoying time together; The smile on my Baby Bean's Face!; neighbor helping neighbor.

God's love sounds like:  music; birds singing; our wonderful choir; a baby's giggle; a babbling brook; gentle breeze; encouragement to keep going; Birds singing.

God's love smells like:  Lavender; Maples budding in the spring; Peonies; the soil under my finger nails after gardening!!; mountain laurel.

God's love smells like:  An icy cold glass of water on a 90° day; pie; chocolate peanut butter cups; an evening glass of wine; delicious fruits & veggies; chocolate chips; chilled cider only slightly "hard".

      What would you add to these wonderfully diverse ways we can experience God's love through our senses?  Please share! 

 And as the United Church of Christ likes to say "No matter who you are, no matter where you are in life's journey, ALL are welcome here!" 
We believe that the Gospel frees us from all kinds of oppression, and as a UCC church, we try to practice that extravagant welcome here. As a local church, our mission is to support people in living meaningful and fulfilling lives in the way of Christ.
