Sunday Worship July 23, 2023

Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ!  I look forward to seeing many of you at the performance of Handel’s “Israel in Egypt” tonight at the culminating event of the Blue Hill Bach Festival and am excited to be singing with the choir.  It is an energetic work!  More than to this, I look forward to seeing you in worship tomorrow morning!  Our hymns will be accompanied by Clair Maxwell on organ, and he will accompany me for an anthem as well as provide a prelude and postlude.  It should be a celebratory day.  A favorite line of scripture lies in the text for tomorrow and is one that has crept into my thoughts often since being here on the peninsula.  “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it,” says Jacob after dreaming of a stairway to heaven with angels traveling up and down.  Just where is it that we find and know the holy in our lives?  How might we become “aware of it” more consciously and so be sustained more fully?  This is the gift of gathering in worship and you are invited!

Worship at Home Materials:  We will be offering worship in-person as well as on Zoom this coming Sunday. Coffee & tea are available after the church service. We ask that if you have not yet been vaccinated you attend worship via Zoom.
