Several weeks ago a jury in Boston pronounced its verdict on
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: later in June he will formally be sentenced to death. I
have shared my thoughts about the death penalty in this space before, and it
seems appropriate to do that again now. My faith compels me to reject the
death penalty, and to advocate for its repeal. I offer these thoughts not
because they are the only way of understanding a difficult issue, but so that
you may know how I am wrestling with it.
I believe that God calls us into life, and that all God’s activity
promotes fullness of life. The fir st stor y of the Bible is the stor y of
God’s creating, and calling life “good.” Even when one of the first humans,
Cain, breaks God’s heart by killing his brother in a fit of jealousy, God
protects Cain’s life. God’s continual invitation is toward fullness of life:
making the most of our individual conditions to life in reverence for God
and in harmony with one another.
We should also recognize that scripture condones the taking of life as
punishment — it was one of the early instructions in Hebraic law. Yet there
is moral evolution in the Bible: while in the earliest days children were
subject to punishment for the sins of their parents, in later years the
punishment was restricted to those who had done wrong themselves. The
famous “eye for an eye, life for a life,” called the “law of retaliation,” came
about to limit the retaliations that often occurred, not to create a legal
opening for them. The tendency in Biblical moral thinking always moves
toward a greater reverence for life.
I believe that capital punishment inflicts grave damage on society.
Every time a person has been killed by the state, it reminds me of Christ

dying on the cross. Our religion has gone to great
lengths to say that his death was necessary, or part of
God’s plan — but I believe that a core message of
the cross is the utter wrongness of execution, rather
than rationalizing the taking of life.
creators, is tried and found guilty — I believe we are
failing to honor God’s liberating action among
humans. God gives freedom for a reason: not for us
to do whatever human laws permit, but in order to
ensure the dignity of all God’s people.
In our time we are blessed to live in a society
where the government is formed of the people, by
the people, and for the people. That vision of our
founders tells me that we, the people, are responsible
for the things done by the state. When a person is
executed following all the provisions of the law, that
means that we the people are a party to willful,
retributive death. It means that the society has
decided vengeance is an acceptable value. It means
that we, the people, have decided that some persons
are beyond redemption. Those decisions inevitably
lessen us: application of the death penalty puts us in
the position of declaring either that a human being is
inhuman or that God’s teachings no longer have
force or meaning. I believe that unless I protest and
resist the death penalty, I am participating in
something that is Godless.
In the Bible, justice means discovering what
has been taken from someone wrongfully, and
giving it back. Clear ly, the wr ongness of mur der
cannot be corrected by restoring life. So in death
penalty cases, justice in the Biblical sense cannot be
achieved. To think of killing a killer as justice runs
the risk of reducing our own moral standing by
hardening our hearts.
I believe that each individual’s action, and
even motivations, are profoundly influenced by
society. Yes, individuals bear r esponsibility for
their choices. But it is also true that when social
pressures have fueled animosity among peoples, or
when societies have allowed systems of gross
inequality to develop, we have helped create
conditions that harm the human spirit, often breeding
profound resentment and despair. When those
conditions contribute to an individual’s misguided
decision to cause harm to others — but only the
individual, and not the social condition and its

website (NianticCommunityChurch.org). You
will find the scripture readings for the current
week, a brief description to set them in
context, a reflection on the passages, and a
prayer starter.
In the debate about capital punishment I hear a
struggle between visions of a merciful society and a
just society. I also hear the struggle with the human
desire to control and protect our society: that struggle
reminds me of Jesus’ terrible days in the desert with
the tempter, whose most pernicious tactic was
inviting Jesus to take matters into his own hands.
Jesus declined. Life and power belong in God’s
hands, and our use of them is faithful only when it is
on God’s terms.
There is far more to this conversation than a few
paragraphs can touch on. I look forward to finding
ways to hear from you and develop my own
thinking, in months to come.
God’s richest blessings to you,
Pastor John A. Nelson

Calling All Hikers...
A hike is planned for Saturday June 6th, which
happens to be Connecticut Trails Day. We will be
hiking in the Nehantic State Forest in Lyme (not the
East Lyme branch). Chris Lawton, volunteer with
the Connecticut Forest & Park Association, will be
leading the hike. It is a moderate five mile hike with
lunch afterwards (that is the lunch that you
brought!) It starts at 9:00 am at the Uncas Pond
picnic area. We will meet at the church parking lot
at 8:30 am and then car pool to Lyme.
RSVP to Ron Johnson at [email protected]
so we can give Chris an estimate of the number
hiking.
The hike is rain or shine unless it is a heavy rain
which will cancel.

Have you ever wondered what a church committee is
all about? Check out a subcommittee of Parish
Life...Labyrinth Ministries and wonder no more. If
this ministry is of interest to you, call the church
office to get involved at (860) 739-6208.
The Niantic Community Church Labyrinth is part
of the Parish Life Committee as a nurturing faith
activity. It is headed by Patty Chaffee and Joanne
Moore, both of whom are certified labyrinth
facilitators through the New England Labyrinth
Guild.
The labyrinth is set up periodically, usually
partnered with another event, such as a speaker,
retreat, or committee meeting. It is portable and
is available to other churches as well. It has been
set up at McCook's Point for Easter and Advent
the past two years.
Walking the labyrinth generally has three stages –
releasing on the way in, receiving at the center,
and returning while you follow the path out of the
labyrinth. There is no right or wrong way to walk
the labyrinth.

Stewardship Thoughts
Greetings! The newly created Stewardship
Committee has been formed and has had its 3rd
meeting. The members of this committee include
Gwen Wildes, Mary Brodhead, Jerry Gilstad, Lew
Meier, Elaine Epply, Sue Thomson, Rich Basham Chairperson, and Pastor John Nelson.
Our focus will be to have stewardship conversations
throughout the year (not only as part of a campaign
in the fall). We will be communicating on a regular
basis thru Wednesday emails, church bulletins,
Tidings, and announcements at Sunday morning
services.
We especially look forward to hearing from YOU,
and we plan to reach out to every member of the
congregation as part of our mission to celebrate and
reinvigorate our shared stewardship of God’s gifts at
NCC. We’ll ask things like...What brought you to
NCC? What keeps you coming back? How does the
church give you opportunities to share God’s grace?
Please share your stories with us and your fellow
church members as we move forward in this
stewardship journey. You can do this by contacting
any of the above mentioned members - or just wait,
and you will hear from us!

The first record we have in the Congregational
church dates to February 13, 1887 with the start
of the Young Peoples Society for Christian
Endeavor. Their constitution states, "Its object
shall be to promote an earnest Christian life
among its members, to increase their mutual
acquaintance, and to make them more useful in
the service of God."
http://www.nianticcommunitychurch.org/prayers to
review prayers, indicate that you have prayed for the
concerns and joys submitted by others, and add your
own prayer requests. You may also send prayer
requests to [email protected]
All posts are automatically added to the ongoing
prayer chain.
In 1890 the young people of the Methodist
Church formed an Epworth League.
During these part few weeks many of you have
supported me and prayed for me. For this I am
eternally grateful. My surgery was a success and
I am home and doing very well. Many have sent
beautiful cards and some have visited with me.
Each one of you has played an important part in
my surgery and recovery. God does send his
angels at just the right moment.
Trivia: Both groups earned money by holding
social affairs such as plays, suppers, and even
spelling bees. The Methodist group also sang at
hospitals to cheer the sick. The Y.P.S.C.E.
contributed $8 quarterly towards the salary of the
organist. They also contributed to mission work
in India. The Epworth group sent many youth to
summer camp.

Thank you from the bottom of my
heart. God is good all the time!

Mission Awareness
Martin House began operation in a house on the State Hospital property to alleviate the influx of homeless when the
decision was made to empty out the entire Hospital. Community services all ready in place were expected to provide
the former patients with over sight with special emphasis on getting them to take their medicine. The community
resources were sorely missing and the funding from the State did not catch up with the need. The Martin House was
then given the mission to serve the mentally ill and homeless in May 20l0, beginning with 8 individuals with
collaboration with Reliance House and Ct. Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. To date this program
has served over 800 adult men and women with the majority of the residents age 40 and 50.
The program provides housing, adult education regarding normal living independently, that includes learning how to
use public transportation, budgeting money, shopping and developing acceptable behavior. Facilitators provide l5
hours per week of skill training, including cooking, volunteer work and hopefully employment. Emphasis is placed on
their ability to monitor their medication.
Residents come from a variety of backgrounds to the college educated. Technology skills, reading and writing skills and
experience living in a community with separate bedrooms but supportive community from both staff and other
residents. Great emphasis is place on employment support goals, etc. Tom Hyland has been the executive director for
this program since its inception and has just last month retired. He will be greatly missed.
There is a great need for consistent fundraising and funding by the State and the community. The program has
expanded to include the Thames River Family Program which serves single mothers and their children, providing
housing for 2 years and supportive services to get them employable, etc.
