AnonymousI have felt the most deeply connected as I struggled to have us allow feminine language for God in worship. It wasn't pleasant. I did not know what I have here, until my boyfriend died in 2002 and we did a service for him. I feel connected as I pay my pledge. I appreciated the people that I have known for a long time. I feel connected when I see us in the pews.I would hope that we will continue to be here. I hope that we become more ethnically diverse. I appreciate the intellectual stimulation of the Rev. Dr Raschko. I am very happy about undoing racism. I appreciate having classical music in worship. Our variety is nice. I would like to see more members, and younger ones. When I tell people that I am a Plymouth member, I would like to hear something like "Oh that church works for justice"I have become more aware of racism in a different way. I have (and Plymouth has been) open and affirming for over 25 years. I have loved doing N-Sid-Sen vespers and [something] bible stories. I am a more humble, self-accepting person
