We are grateful for the many years of fellowship in this congregation: baptisms, marriages and funerals, confirmations and ordinations, Christmas Eves, Easter Sundays and holy days, music, teaching, youth groups, service projects and just everyday fellowship, potluck dinners and coffee hours. The church history will be celebrated and preserved, and the church's people will be found, still vital and prayerful, throughout the Malden community and beyond.
Quote of the Day
We are not left with a mere report of bygone events, to be received in faith and remembered with veneration. God’s bounty toward us has been multiplied, so that even in our own times we daily experience the grace which belonged to those first beginnings.
Having lunch in a field one day, I troubled an ant with a question. I asked of him humbly, “’Have you ever been to Paris?’” And he replied, “’no, but I wouldn’t mind going.’” And then the ant asked me if I had ever been to a famous ant city. And I regretted that I hadn’t, and was quick to add, “’I wouldn’t mind, too!’” This led to a conclusion: There is life that we do not know of. How aware are we of all consciousness in this universe? Less than that is our knowledge of God. How then can we ever argue about Him?
