Whether you read the print edition that arrives in your mailbox, or the digital version available through the link, you’ll see that we let our work speak for itself through our newsletter.  The articles tell the story better than any fundraising appeal ever could: the Maine Council of Churches makes a difference—in the life of our congregations, in the lives of people of faith and good will, and in the lives of our most vulnerable neighbors who need trusted allies and advocates to stand with them for justice, compassion and peace.

The assigned text for the third Sunday of Lent this year, the story of this conversation


In our faith communities this March, let’s celebrate the women who tell our stories, including women preachers.

In Maine’s history, one of the woman preacher-storytellers whose story could be celebrated in your church or meeting this month is Rev. Margaret K. Henrichsen.  She was a young widow who, in the 1940’s, came to Maine to serve

The lectionary assigns Psalm 121 to be read on the second Sunday in Lent this year:

Imagine inviting God to slow you down and teach you how to rest this Lenten season.  I wonder how this invitation might shape your discipline and practice in surprising ways.
