This is a short film by Rev. Alexander Lang shown at his last sermon on Sunday, August 27, 2023. Over the last summer, Alex interviewed various people in the congregation, asking them to reflect on where we’ve been as a church and where we’re going as a community.
At the end of the film is poem written by Rev. Lang entitled And… The reason for the title is that “and” is a conjunction that is used to connect words, clauses, or sentences, that are to be taken jointly. It takes something that came before and connects it with something that comes after. This is what Rev. Lang’s last sermon was about: Connecting past, present and future.
