Sunday, August 18, 2019:
Tenth Sunday after Pentecost:
This Sunday brings the return of Rev. Matthew from Sabbatical. It will be great to have him back in our midst. We will return to our regular schedule of Eucharist at both services, 8:00 AM in the Chapel and 10:00 AM in the Church.
This Sunday's gospel reading brings us a Jesus who has harsh words for his listeners. In keeping with our ongoing weather Jesus says, "There will be scorching heat." I wonder what you make of these challenging words from Luke's gospel account?
Biblical scholar Justo Gonzalez writes of this passage, "We know that the future belongs to the reign of God. But, given the potential cost, it is not surprising that we are strongly tempted not to see the signs of the new time that is emerging."
Our Brown Bag Book/Bible Study also continues this week with a conversation about the Anointing of the Sick from Rachel Held Evans' book Searching for Sunday.
Our KidSpace is now open in the church for any of our young people.
Godly Play is on Summer Break and will resume Godly Play stories on September 15th. Nursery care continues through the summer.
Youth Group has concluded its regular meetings for the season; regular Sunday meetings will resume in the fall.
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.
