We were, I am afraid, appropriately "called out" by David Collins for failure to shovel all the sidewalks around the First Congregational Church, "Shovel your sidewalk," (Feb. 21). While we struggle to maintain such a large space with a small (but faithful) congregation, being good neighbors to our fellow citizens in New London is a very high priority. Ours is a spirituality grounded and expressed in the local community we love. Taking care of the space around us needs to be part of that witness. The next storm will find us better prepared.
