LENT 2016

“Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful…”

Hebrews 10:23


          1866 was a monumental year for the United States and the date of origin for us at The Presbyterian Church at Tenafly. That year the nation began to seek its future after the period of conflict and destruction of the Civil War. Soldiers became civilians returning to their farms, their families and their business enterprises. Buoyed, no doubt, by the end of strife many new initiatives flourished including: the first underwater tunnel (Chicago), the first paid fire department (New York) the establishment of the ASPCA to protect animals, the completion of the dome of the U.S. Capitol.

          In Tenafly, population 500, the small fellowship of worshippers renewed their hope of establishing a Presbyterian place of worship.         Delayed by the tumult of the Civil War, on July 30 the “The Presbyterian Church at Tenafly” was finally established and the first two elders elected. From that modest start property was secured, a mortgage signed and ground breaking for our present day chapel commenced using building stones of quarried on site.

          Somehow that history, in its context, holds an important message as we begin to celebrate our 150th Anniversary as a witness to Christ.

          We have much to celebrate, to recall and to remember as we move through this anniversary year. My hope is that we will never lose sight of the vision of our founders to provide a Presbyterian presence, a place of welcome and worship and a community of believers dedicated to service in this good place.

          In the months to come we will celebrate in a variety of ways. We launched our anniversary year appropriately with a highly successful    Mission Project in Jersey City. In all that we do let us sense within ourselves the same urgency that marked our founders and those who      followed in adapting to the changing needs and dynamics within the community and congregation.

          For this anniversary year let us all give thanks for our heritage and  renew our own commitment to the future as we live into calling of our generation as The Presbyterian Church at Tenafly.


Yours for the journey,

Rev. Eileen W. Lindner
