Sunday Worship June 23, 2024

Grace to you, and peace from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ!  Kirk Jones, a professor from Andover Newton, published a book called Rest in the Storm, which I read as part of a wonderful class called “The Jazz of Preaching.”  While our personal and sometimes academic connection did sometimes center on music, I continue to read Kirk’s words because of “rest.”  In thinking of our expectations for summer recreation and relaxation, I wonder where we find our rest and also whether we are called to rest or to work?  If to the former, how are we best to find comfort and rest; if the latter, how is our work to be fruitful without being draining.  Some possible answers to these questions may be found in our readings for this week.  I look forward to exploring these ideas with you as we grow in faith.

Blessings and peace, Lisa

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. Masks are suggested in the sanctuary and required during the singing of hymns, as the virus spreads most easily with the projection of droplets.
