small group study
New Book Study, "Caste"
I am also excited to announce that we are going to start a new book study with the book, "Caste: The Origins of Our Discontent" written by Isabel Wilkerson. In this brilliant book, Wilkerson gives us a masterful portrait of an unseen phenomenon in America. She explores, through a deeply researched narrative and stories about real people, how America has been shaped by a hidden caste system. And, how this structure is a rigid hierarchy of human rankings. The study will begin on May 10th at 7pm. I will not be able to be with you most of the sessions, but there will be facilitators who will help you to have fruitful discussions. Please consider joining us! This study is open to all.

Jesse Lee Meeting House the oldest Methodist church in Maine
(excerpt from George Smith's article in the Kennebec Journal 2/19/2020)
The Readfield Methodist Church is responsible for the Meeting House, which was built between 1793 and 1795. And its dedication on June 21, 1795, drew as many as 2,000 people.
The church was originally up on the hill and was moved 500 feet to its present location by 50 teams of oxen. Regular worship services were held here until 1961 when five local congregations combined into one church currently known as the Readfield United Methodist Church in Kents Hill.But the Jesse Lee Meeting House is still the host of Easter sunrise and Christmas Eve services, plus Sunday evening services in the summer and weddings, funerals, and other special events. Many of the services here involve lots of singing, which is very special. The church, partly because it is so historic, is so peaceful and holy, I could sit there for hours.
Our church members are pleased and proud to care for and maintain this very special church.
