Welcome! Welcome!

I am delighted you have found us here online. I am thrilled to serve as pastor at the Congregational Church of Harvard. In my more than two decades of ministry, I have never been more warmly welcomed than I have here in Harvard.

A thought from Wendell Berry is always a good place to begin: “A community is the mental and spiritual condition of knowing that the place is shared, and that the people who share the place define and limit the possibilities of each other’s lives. It is the knowledge that people have of each other, their concern for each other, their trust in each other, the freedom with which they come and go among themselves.”

As a pastor and a psychotherapist, I am deeply interested and invested in helping communities nurture and promote their “mental and spiritual condition.” Perhaps you are finding yourself less connected than you would like to be. Perhaps you would like to contribute to a community that is seeking to grow in their knowledge, concern, and trust in one another and the world. If so, come and see. We are seeking to offer a radical welcome – and we proclaim it each time we celebrate communion:

“The table is open to all  – the faithful and the faithless, the saints and the sinners, the believers and the nonbelievers. If it were not so, it would not be God’s table.”

I am onsite on Wednesdays and Sundays, and would welcome the opportunity to meet with you. We would love to keep you informed and updated via our email list. You may sign up here:
