March 20, 2014 So, the (justifiable) rap about Hanover’s pastor: he’s obsessed with sports, and especially analogies about sports and faith.  In the Lenten spirit of resisting temptation, said pastor will abstain from offering one of the many analogies begging to be unpacked with the onset of March Madness…the annual 68 team extravaganza that leads […]

March 6, 2014Last evening foreheads were smudged with ashes to mark the first of forty purple days of repentance.  Each smudge reminds its bearer of the circle of life: that “we are dust, and to dust we shall return.” One of the passages read each year on Ash Wednesday is from the sermon on the […]

February 27, 2014 This Sunday will be a carnival during and after worship!  This being that last hurrah before Lent, we will joyfully, playfully, and yet reverently, worship God in the spirit of Mardi Gras.  All are invited to don your favorite masks, beads, and bright colors. Masks will be the key.  With a mask […]

February 20, 2014 It was one of the most riveting moments in Olympic history.  On Saturday morning the American hockey team faced off against the Russian team on their home ice.  Tied 2-2 at the end of regulation play, and after a 4:00 minute sudden-death overtime period, the American team won in a “shootout”: a […]
