Blessings All,
This Sunday is Communion Sunday – and Meditation Sunday.  The scriptures are:  Genesis 37:1-4, 12-28  moving from Jacob to Joseph (you know the fellow with the fancy coat and his brothers’ with attitudes) and Matthew 14:22-33 – some walking on water stuff.
The Message is entitled:  “Lifted Up.”  Do you need a lift?
We will celebrate Communion and if you wish to support the Deacons’ Fund – that would be great.  The Fund covers a number of different expenses both regular and irregular.  One item it supports and covers is our Meditation time with Chessy Kelley.
Speaking of Chessy – she will be leading a Meditation workshop beginning at 11:00 in the sanctuary.  If you have not experienced this form of spiritual practice – these workshop offer a great opportunity to do so.  Chessy was trained in and practices within the Buddhist tradition but her approach is ecumenically spiritual.
I hope to see you on Sunday
in Faith,
Gary

Blessings All, – again – this time for everyone
This Sunday we will focus on Matthew 13:31-33.  I will read from Genesis as we have been following the soap opera of the semi-historical founders of the faith – Abraham, Isaac and Jacob along with a number of wives etc. etc.  The reading from Genesis this week is:  29:15-28 and I may read a bit more than that.  There is an image of marriage and family that some traditionalists would not necessary consider appropriate – but here it is – right in Genesis.   Some who say – “I believe in the biblical image of marriage and family” might not want to read this.
I am looking forward to our time together on Sunday
Peace to you all,
Gary

Blessings All,
Another wonderful weekend (weather wise) and I hope in many many ways is awaiting us.  For this Sunday the scriptures will be Genesis 28:10-19a (we will also sing a hymn about this passage) and Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43.  The sermon is entitled:  “Lost in the Weeds?”  Liz Farman will be providing music for our service and you and I will be asked to provide spirit (something we are all gifted with).
I know a  lot of people are doing a lot of things but if you are around I hope to see you on Sunday.
God Bless You
Gary

Blessings All,
Wishing all a safe holiday weekend.  Speaking of holiday weekends – what a gift – Friday the 4th starts it off with Independence Day and the weekend finishes with Interdependence Day  known sometimes as Sabbath Worship.  We will be downstairs in the Fellowship Hall celebrating our time with God and each other.  We will receive Communion and the scriptures are:  Genesis 24:34-38, 42-49, 58-67  and Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30 with a Message entitled:  “All Ness.”
Again have a great weekend and see you on Sunday
In Christ,
Gary
