We hear it over and over again – our politics are broken. People don’t talk to each other; we shout AT each other. And where do we turn for community? Families live far apart from one another; churches and other faith communities see significant declines in attendance. Civic organizations like fire departments, Rotaries, scouts – things that once were a “given” in our towns and villages are going by the wayside. Does this mean we don’t need or long for deeper community? Quite the contrary – we want and need it more than ever. The question is this: Are we willing to make the commitments necessary to create what we want and need? Our worship at First UMC Burlington attempts to find the balance between the power of ancient liturgies and the realities of life in the 21st century. The Bible is our backdrop, the living canvass on which we strive to paint the pictures and stories of our lives. Jesus taught some of the most complex spiritual lessons with the simplest of stories. And what could be more simple than the command to love our neighbor? We invite you to join us for worship Sunday mornings at 9:45. Check out our Facebook Page and, for info regarding what’s going in the parish, go to our First UMC Burlington Community and ask to join – the group and the discussion.
