One of my deepest convictions has long been that we are called to work with God in the ongoing process of creation – which means that we are called to be creative. I used to think being creative was limited to being able to make something: a painting, a poem, a lasagna, a birdhouse. Something concrete, and infused with artistic expression. That is all part of it, but since many of us are hampered by the notion that we have little capacity for artistic expression, we feel that the opportunity to be creative has passed us by.

It hasn't.

People who are actively seeking a new church no longer turn to the newspapers or an advertisement on a placemat at a diner. The first stop for most people will be the internet – particularly your website and Facebook.


United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of The Episcopal Church. Using UTO "Blue Boxes," men, women, and children nurture the habit of giving daily thanks for God's blessings.

Being in Union City due to my internship gives one an opportunity to experience what New York City offers. In College, I went to Hofstra University and I had access to being very close to the city. Possibly one of my significant times in the city involved being there during the Occupy Wall Street Protest. But this weekend I took part in a very unique protest march. It was unique both in terms of scale and importance. The march which one may have heard about was the People’s Climate March.
