Sixth Sunday after Pentecost
Good morning, Seekers! As Peter said, my name is Amy Moffitt, and I am both honored and terrified by the opportunity to preach today at Seekers. As I think most of you know, I visited Seekers once years ago, but I hadn’t been back and wasn’t a part of this community until life circumstances –most notably the global pandemic—had me looking for a community of faith online.

Fourth Sunday after Pentecost
Good morning everyone! My mission group knows that Zoom meetings have been challenging to me—Sitting on a chair for two hours without the walk into the sanctuary, the standing for hymns and all of the distractions of many faces makes me less attentive than I should be. But in honor of this technology that allows us to be together, I will make an effort to talk slowly in case one of us has one of those glitches that slows word transmission.

Dear Seekers and Friends,
As we enter our 15th week and are moving into a full reopening, I have found myself thinking that there is no longer a need for this resources email anymore. I have enjoyed gathering and sharing a variety of information and I hope that it has been helpful, entertaining, thought provoking and opened new possibilities.
This will be the last issue of the Resources Email!
