Spiritual Guidance & Pastoral Care

Rock Spring is a caring and joyful place; but we also know that people sometimes need to be able to talk through life issues and faith with another person, which is why our pastor is available to meet and talk with individuals, couples, and families.

Rock Spring is also the kind of caring place that wants to be with people when there is an illness, hospitalization, or other life-event for which you or someone you love may need a visit. Both Rev. Dwyer and Laura Martin are available for hospital visits and pastoral calls when the need arises.

Spiritual Guidance

If you are in need of guidance, want someone to talk through life’s challenges with, or would like to let us know of a non-emergency illness, hospitalization, or other life-event, please call the church office (703) 538-4886 or email care@rockspringucc.org.

To Be Collected: Sunday, June 4

by Laura Martin

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
