Dear friends of the New Hampshire Council of Churches,
Last month the Rev. Dr. Christopher Duraisingh addressed a gathering of clergy and lay people at a workshop on ecumenical worship sponsored by the NH Council of Churches
He began his talk by sketching a line on a big sheet of newsprint. Just a simple line, beginning at the bottom left hand side of the page, then surging up and over to the right top corner and finally disappearing right off the page. "This," he said, "is God's ongoing action in the world. What is its direction? What is its goal? To transform the whole world from strangers into family, a family marked by openness, trust, and justice."
Listening to him, I realized that his little drawing perfectly captures the mission of the NH Council of Churches, ten denominations-American Baptist, Methodist, Roman Catholic, Society of Friends (Quakers), Greek Orthodox, Lutheran (ELCA), United Church of Christ, Episcopal, Unitarian and Presbyterian-seeking to serve our one God.
