The Little Food Shelf that Could

by Eleanor Guare

There are many good deeds a church community can do throughout the year. In a normal year, church events and community deeds are the subject for discussion and deliberation by various church committees. There are details. These things take time… Things are different now. Unemployment, fear, and hunger are stark realities in our community. What […]

The Little Food Shelf is Open!

by Eleanor Guare

The first time I ever saw a Little Library was on a foot path that traversed an oceanside community in Maine. Since then I’ve noticed them right here in Greensboro, alongside the Memorial Garden and on a path to Willey’s Beach. There may be many more. There is novelty associated with these little libraries, and […]

Village Fellowship

by Eleanor Guare

A little over a month ago I thought about creating a local map and directory that would help stores and services in the village deal with the flow of folks seeking beer, cheese, lodging, performances and other delights and necessities. The idea was nothing original, just a way to guide visitors and create a sense […]

Humility and Service

There are many artistic masterpieces depicting Jesus’s arrival into Jerusalem on what we now call Palm Sunday.

A Creation Justice Covenant

by Ed Sunday-Winters

This summer we read Jim Antal’s, Climate Church, Climate World: How People of Faith Must Work for Change, at Greensboro United Church of Christ. We gathered for five weeks to discuss our planet and our responsibility to care for it. The experience was rich and sobering. We took account of the ways we have already […]

Family Game Night

by Judy Dales

On a cold February evening last weekend, a group gathered in Fellowship Hall to enjoy a delicious spaghetti dinner and enjoy a few hours of board games. As folks entered the hall they were greeted by the aroma of garlic bread and tomato sauce that had been simmering most of the day. The actual meal […]

“Eyes to See and Ears to Hear”

by Kyle

Why would a church rent a bus to transport people to a protest at the state capital? That is what we did one week ago on Saturday. Twenty or so of us from our church and surrounding community boarded a bus and headed to Montpelier for #MarchforourlivesVT. But why? Certainly, each individual who made the […]
