Pastoral Letter #14

Pastoral Letter #14 Dear Members and Friends, We missed you this morning. Yes, you. We had a Zoom coffee conversation at 9 and you weren’t there. We understand, maybe you had to run an errand.

We do not know when we will be […]

It mostly worked; one person had a picture, but no sound; another had sound, but no picture; and many had difficulty at first, but, with plenty of regular old smartphone […]
