CH@Ts Reflections
I was grateful to have participated in a number of this summer’s conversations on anti-racism and social injustices. Each time I felt it was a safe space to be authentic, vulnerable and learn along with the community at CHT. We all come with our own lenses and each time I learned with and from others. I’m looking forward to hearing, sharing and learning more in the weeks and months to come. Thank you to everyone for sharing yourselves in these especially challenging times.

Sunday CH@Ts
Beginning September 20 and running until October 11 we will have special guests at out 12:00 pm CH@Ts. The Rev. Seth Wispelwey and The Rev Tracy Howe are married pastors in the United Church of Christ traditions. Seth is most well known for being one of the key organizers of Congregate C’ville, a faith-based group that organized to be in opposition to the white supremacist groups that came together in Charlottesville for the “Unite the Right” rally in August 2017. Together they invited interfaith clergy to stand in solidarity and love, to provide instruction on nonviolent action, to prepare and hold prayer services during the rally. They will share some of their own experiences, help us to center our justice work in our Christian faith, and give some practical advice for our congregation. All are welcome to join.

Home Worship Bags
As we move to the fall, we will continue to hold virtual services on Facebook on Sundays. We know this is disappointing, but we also hold the health of our congregation and all as our top priority. We will continue to re-evaluate and give updates each month, and we are discussing ways to gather together outside of Sunday worship. For some in our community, virtual worship is not possible or preferable. Lack of interest or access to internet keeps folks from connecting, and as the length of our separation grows, we want to reach out to those who have not connected with our virtual church community. We have assembled a limited number of home worship kits for these parishioners. They include a CD of music we’ve used in our service, a morning prayer booklet (large print), a battery operated candle, and a picture of our rose window. We will drop off the kits in a touchless delivery. If you are interested in receiving one of these kits, please contact Leda Milazzo, our Administrative Receptionist at communications@htrit.org.
