“The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world and those who live in it,” Psalm 42:1
Today is election day and I hope you have had a chance to vote. No matter the outcome I hope that we can remember that relationships are much more important than politics. We are here for one another and seek God’s will together in our lives and our communities.

The Pastoral committee of Rankin and UPC met recently with a suggestion of a “Christmas memory” booklet. We are asking members to submit a memory of a funny or favorite Christmas which will be made into a booklet. Bob Everett has volunteered to make the cover and Louise Nincehelser and Crystal Graff will put it all together. This can be emailed to Louise at 1612Louise@gmail.com or dropped off or sent to the churches. Deadline is December 5th; booklets will be available at worship December 13th and mailed the following week. Let’s see how many memories we can gather in the booklet.
