This is also a great time to explore what other congregations may be providing in the way of online worship. Dianne B thinks she might check out https://woodroffeunited.org/ and/or https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZ4i6PVxnS46qYbZrSrABbA – congregations she attended when she lived in other cities.

A Prayer for the New Year from the words of Hymn # 528 in Voices United
God of life, in Christ you lead us, guiding us along the way.
In our past, through joys and sorrows, you have been our strength and stay.
Keep us faithful, true disciples, in our learning and our praise,
celebrating past and present, consecrating future days.
Words by Jane Parker Huber 1992
As we transition from 2020 to 2021, may we find gratitude for the ways we have found to companion one another over these last months. We at Harrow United commit to continuing in all the ways possible to stay connected, to share hope and love with one another and with our wider communities.
