companionship on life's sacred journey

Letting go helps us to live in a more peaceful state of mind and helps restore our balance. It allows others to be responsible for themselves and for us to take our hands off situations that do not belong to us.

Message From Our Minister

From the Heart

Thirty-five years! Wow! Our congregation has been alive and working in Western New York for thirty-five years, offering a beacon of religious liberalism here. We plan to celebrate this anniversary during this month, at the Sunday service on March 25.

As your minister, I have been with you just a little more than two years. So there is so much of our congregation’s history I do not know, at least in the same way long time members do. There are good records of the basic history, the brief description of events. However, I only know a little about you all felt as we changed and grew.

So I am asking anyone who has a good memory from our congregational life to contact me, and I will include highlights of these memories in the March 25 service. We will celebrate these memories together and look forward to the future for our religious community.

In this as in so many other things, I look forward to learning more and growing in understanding with you all.

Blessed be.
Rev. George Buchanan
