Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost
This Sunday, our lessons from Genesis and Luke are all about the ways in which we contend with God. Genesis offers us an image of Jacob, the great patriarch of the people of Israel, wrestling with God all night long. The gospel presents a parable of Jesus in which a woman is relentlessly demanding justice from a corrupt judge who finally gives in to her demands because she wears him out - and Jesus seems to compare this to the way in which we sometimes content with God. Both of these images suggest to be in relationship with God is not always easy, and we'll reflect on that at our services this week.
This Sunday will also include the second part of our Signs of Life Conversation, as we seek to discern where God is leading us over the next couple of years. Following the 10 am service, you are invited to gather briefly in Trinity Hall, and then from there you will be able to take a box lunch and join one of our conversation groups focusing on a specific area of ministry. We will conclude by 1 pm. Even if you weren't able to participate in the first Signs of Life Conversation on September 29, you are still welcome to participate this coming Sunday.
Here are more details about our normal Sunday worship schedule:
Our 8:00 am service is held in the Chapel, except on the first Sunday of the month, when it is held in the Church. It includes Communion, Sermon, and a little music. It follows Rite I from the Book of Common Prayer ("thee, thou, thy" language) and is a quieter, more contemplative service.
Our 10:00 am service is held in the Church, and is the one most people attend. It follows a cycle of liturgies or services over each month. The choir sings on most Sundays.
We have a professionally staffed nursery (located in Angus Hall) for infants through age 3. It is open from 9:00 am until the end of the 10:00 am service.
