The French film director Jean Luc Godard said that every story should have a beginning, a middle and an end but not necessarily in that order. As Brian begins his ministry with us, it is tempting to think of this as a beginning, yet it may be better to think of this as a middle, as a continuation of the story of UUFRC. The most important time in any story is the present because what we do now determines the next direction of our story. This worship service will explore the meaning and significance of this particular moment in time as Brian begins his ministry with us. Worship Associate: Chris DeCardy.
