21st Sunday after Pentecost
This Sundays' Gospel reading is a story about a young man who comes to Jesus, asking what he needs to do to enter the kingdom of God. Jesus knows he is very wealthy, and so he tells him that he needs to give up his wealth. The man goes away saddened, because he can't bring himself to do this. And the disciples wonder how anyone can enter God's reign, if this is the price.
It's a reading that provides us an opportunity to consider what obstacles we face when it comes to being a part of God's dream for humanity. Both the obstacles that are found in our individual lives, and the obstacles that are found in the life of the world.
Godly Play, our Sunday morning program for chidlren, is in full swing. Children will begin the service in church with their parents, and are led to their classes after the first reading. Parents will pick their children up in Trinity Hall after church. As always, our Nursery will be open for the littlest ones.
The Youth Group meets this Sunday at 6 pm in Trinity Hall.
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.
Sunday mornings are active for children. Children begin the 10 am service each Sunday in church, and then leave in procession after the first reading to gather separately, first to hear the Gospel reading of the day and then to go to their classes. Children's Christian formation includes Godly Play for children age four through fifth grade. Parents can pick up their children from Trinity Hall and bring them into church to receive Communion if they wish, or they may pick up their children after church is over.
