This Sunday’s gospel reading: Luke 9: 51 – 62
51 When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem. 52 And he sent messengers ahead of him. On their way they entered a village of the Samaritans to make ready for him; 53 but they did not receive him, because his face was set toward Jerusalem. 54 When his disciples James and John saw it, they said, “Lord, do you want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?” 55 But he turned and rebuked them. 56 Then they went on to another village.
57 As they were going along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” 58 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” 59 To another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.” 60 But Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” 61 Another said, “I will follow you, Lord; but let me first say farewell to those at my home.” 62 Jesus said to him, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”

We move from Lent into Holy Week and the joy of Easter

Welcome Enviro-Lent

Journey with us through the season of Lent with weekly group discussion and prayer that will reconnect us to the gift of God’s creation and our privileged role as stewards of God’s handiwork. Each week we will focus on theological and scriptural themes of creation care and practical ways in which we can care and advocate for God’s creation in our daily lives.

The meeting will be hosted on Wednesdays from 6:00pm-7:00pm from March 9th to April 6th and is in person as well as available on Zoom.

A soup supper will be available during the in-person gathering. If you’d like to volunteer to bring soup or sides one Wednesday, there is a sign-up sheet in the hallway outside the doors to the sanctuary.

Those wishing to join us on Zoom can use this link at the appropriate time: https://bit.ly/3Mp15O9

Blessing of animals will be Oct 10

It has been our custom for many years to invite our animal companions to join us in worship on a Sunday near the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the great saint, and lover of God’s humble creatures.
This year we will have this service of Blessing of the Animals on October 10, at our regular 10:30 AM service time, outside under the tent.
Bring your animal friends and companions for a time of love and appreciation for the many blessings they bring to our lives.
