To Chase and Catch a Firefly
Reverend Scott McNeill

 I am quite taken by these magical summertime creatures that light up the sky. Gone are the days where I might run around and try to catch and hold a firefly or two by hand; but, each of us are called to - in the words of Steinbeck - reach for the moon (and catch a firefly on the way down). Join us in the waning days of summer, as we celebrate the light of each life. 
Please Don't Park on the Grass
Indiana University has requested we do not park on grassy areas of their property west of Fee Lane. On Sundays or at other times when we need to park there, please only park on paved or graveled areas.Please also don't park on our neighbor's grass or on our grass. Thanks!
