Marie "Marty" Tracy's Ecclesiastical Council

Marie "Marty" Tracy's Ecclesiastical Council

The Committee on Ministry of the Metropolitan Association has scheduled an Ecclesiastical Council for Marie (Marty) B. Tracy on Thursday, September 6th at 7 p.m. at Broadway UCC.   

An Ecclesiastical Council is the last step in one's ordination process and takes very seriously the Congregationalist covenantal idea that it is the community who ordain a person to ministry.  A minimum of five Association churches must be represented at the Ecclesiastical Council.  Marty plans to share a section of her ordination paper during this Council, and the people in the audience, both lay and clergy, are encouraged to ask Marty any question they want regarding her faith journey and theology.

Marty has been so grateful for Broadway’s continual support and encouragement as she has discerned this Call to Ministry over these last five and a half years.  Broadway UCC helped Marty to feel safe in a church community again after almost ten years away from organized religion, and Broadway as a congregation helped her to explore and deepen what it means to be a part of a faith community.  

Please come and support Marty as she takes this final step!

Broadway Book Club

The next Book Club meeting will be held after 5pm worship on June 17th, to discuss the Pulitzer Prize winning novel All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. Simply read the book on your own time, and come ready to discuss!

"From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, the stunningly beautiful instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.

Marie-Laure lives in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where her father works. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.

In a mining town in Germany, Werner Pfennig, an orphan, grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find that brings them news and stories from places they have never seen or imagined. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments and is enlisted to use his talent to track down the resistance. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another." (from the publisher Scribner, 2014)

The next Book Club meeting will be held after 5pm worship on April 29th, to discuss the non-fiction bestseller The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. Simply read the book on your own time, and come ready to discuss!

"Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells--taken without her knowledge in 1951--became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, and more. Henrietta's cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family can't afford health insurance. This phenomenal New York Times bestseller tells a riveting story of the collision between ethics, race, and medicine; of scientific discovery and faith healing; and of a daughter consumed with questions about the mother she never knew." (from the publisher Broadway Books, 2011)

On June 3rd, the Book Club will discuss the novel All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.
