Westminster Presbyterian Church

Westminster is a congregation deeply committed to building a community whose purpose is to serve Jesus Christ in the city. We see our location as a unique gift. We are situated a block away from the state capitol of New York.

We are located in a diverse and vibrant urban neighborhood. At a time of polarization in government, media and religion, and when public discourse is increasingly shrill and uncivil, Westminster attempts to be a wide tent under which diverse ideas are not only tolerated, but welcome.

Save the Pine Bush has their monthly dinner at the rented-out hall below the church. It is accessed by going to 85 Chesnut Street. There is off-street parking next to the church for church functions and the dinner.

Save the Pine Bush Dinner – 6 PM Tonight

Roger Downs will speak about the new, proposed changes in the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act - SEQRA. He will describe the proposed changes and how these will affect the environmental review process. Is “streamlining” needed or just a way to push through bad projects? How will limiting scoping affect the process? Roger will tell us what we can do to protect SEQRA.

Save the Pine Bush Dinner – Tonight at 6 PM

"Hugh Johnson worked over twenty years in the Albany National Weather Service office as a Meteorological Forecaster. He will discuss his perspective on the future of the National Weather Service. He will also add “food for thought” regarding Climate Change and how it could impact the Pine Bush as well as many other facets of our daily lives."

"At the Westminster Presbyterian Church, 85 Chestnut Street (people with cars can park in the lot near the door). All-you-can-eat dinner, with vegetarian and vegan options. Only $12 for adults, $6 for students, and $2 for children. People who make reservations are served first. For reservations, please leave a message for Rezsin Adams at 462-0891 or email pinebush@mac.com."

Good afternoon! Partly cloudy skies and 70 degrees at the Keheler Preserve in New Scotland. There is a 11 mph breeze from the northwest. The current dew point is 61.

Some haze but it’s become a decent day as it has progressed. Sitting at the Overlook Chair at Keheler Preserve, thinking it’s ironic to be spending time on the weekend looking back at the office building I normally work in on weekdays. 

A pretty nice afternoon but I expect it to cloud back up. We needed the rain for sure. Not nearly enough rain for all the clouds we had yesterday but at least it made the woods damp to reduce the fire risk. 

Once again I left the long lens in my truck. I really wanted to have it for taking pictures from along the Overlook Trail. At least this area is close to home. A nice evening I should pack a dinner and go for an evening hike when we have strong  evening light over the city.
