Observations on the process of renewal and the complexity of conforming to it’s structure. How the various stages of life continually shape and reshape the ways in which we process our world and thereby develop our thinking. Are we giving adequate attention to the truths that are being revealed about ourselves to ourselves and the actions that spring from that image?
After five years as associate pastor of Christ Apostolic Temple Fellowship in Dayton, Ohio, at age 24 Shawn was called into the ministry of church planting and began these efforts in the city of Columbus, OH, where he also was the lead pastor. Shawn has lead church planting missions in at least 15 cities over 15 years. At 25 he was invited to sit on the Board of Bishops of the Christ Apostolic Temple Fellowship. He has also served on boards for community organizations towards efforts in juvenile prison reform and adequate housing for homeless teens.
But most importantly, he is a husband to Hannah and a father to ILY(may she Rest In Peace), Awnnica, Atreyu, and Archer! Shawn and Hannah moved to Savannah in 2018 and they reside in Richmond Hill.

Rev Susan preaching
During this fall as the seasons change, we look at returning to promises and commitments we've made and perhaps, broken. How do we renew what called to us before and how it changes over time? How is this related to our feelings about church, the important relationships in our life and sources of renewal for the year ahead?

The Pastoral Care team is where to look for the helpers (and to be a helper).
As you may have seen in recent communications, we've started to gather a list of people who are interested in helping to deliver groceries and other items for members of the congregation that need to remain homebound. We're also gathering a list of volunteers who are willing to call fellow members to reach out and check in with people. During this time of social distancing, we don't need to be socially isolated and a simple phone call can go a long way in bringing some cheer to everyone's day.
Covenant Groups - Soul Matters - Our theme for September is Renewal
Join one today - Now meeting via videoconference.
Members enjoy and benefit from the monthly-themed discussions, but the greatest value of participating in a covenant group may be the opportunity to connect deeply with one another. During this time of social distancing, the experience of being truly listened to and offering that same space to others is especially relevant. We are not a support group or discussion group, but a gathering of caring UU companions who come together to foster personal spiritual growth and to share a sense of community.
