When New Utrecht Reformed Church returned to in person worship on September 13, 2020, Mary Shields read aloud her poem about the loss of our beloved pastor, Rev. E.J. Emerson. We want to share Mary’s poem with the community and with the greater church. Please see the poem below.
E.J. had the soul of a poet, so it is most fitting for her to be remembered in poetry.
