A while ago I was talking with someone who had just learned that I was a minister. And I got a response that I’ve heard before—maybe you have as well.. He said that although he was “kind of a spiritual person” he didn’t like organized religion. I could only reply, as you might want to: “Then you’d love being at the Congregational Church! We’re the champions of unorganized religion.”
There aren’t many places in town like this one. As Bob Abernethy, the host of PBS’s Religion and Ethics Newsweekly said to me after he worshiped here once: “This is the real thing.”
This morning we will welcome six new people into this unruly fellowship. And when our worship concludes, we will do our best to appear organized as we meet together to recall what we in our disparate ways have done and to look ahead to another year of unorganized life together. We call this our “Annual Meeting.”
We’re all living out our faith in so many different ways that it’s hard to get a handle on just who we are. I’ll make an attempt at it, however.
