Free Spirits

Drumthwacket and Caroling
Well, we actually did it in November, although it did take a bit of organization and extra effort. We made it to the Governor’s mansion just outside of Princeton, the famous Drumthwacket. Each room of the stately building was uniquely decorated for the holiday season. There was such detail to take note of that the hour walking was hardly noticed. We ended our visit at Good Time Charlie’s in Kingston with much laughter.

In December, The Free Spirits decided to just stay closer to home and enjoy some traditional singing of Christmas Carols. Pastor Hartmut even accompanied us on his horn!

We remembered our dear friend, Jean Hance, whom we usually visited at the Reformed Church Home for this occasion.
Our next meeting will take place in February as January’s weather is usually too nasty to go out in. Who knows what will happen this year!

About Susan Kramer-Mills

Susan Kramer-Mills' journey as a pastor has led her to a variety of places. Before attending McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago she was a Volunteer-in-Mission for two years West Berlin, Germany. After returning to the United States and graduating from seminary, she returned with her husband Hartmut to Germany. From 1990 to 1992 she was campus chaplain and registrar at Naumburg Seminary in former East Germany. With the closing of the seminary she assumed the pastorate for the yoked congregations of Stoessen, Goerschen and Rathewitz in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. At the same time she taught Religious Instruction at two public elementary schools until 1998. During this time she was assigned six additional congregations to the original three. In 1998, she received a call as Associate Pastor to Trinity Presbyterian Church in East Brunswick, New Jersey. She served in that position until 2000, when she and her husband accepted a call as co-pastors to First Reformed Church in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Since April 1, 2004, Rev. Kramer-Mills has also been working part-time as Classis Minister to the Classis of New Brunswick.
