The season is changing; autumn begins on Monday. These are the Days of Awe in Judaism, the religion from which Christianity originated, and our Jewish friends are celebrating a new year – 5781 – with Rosh Hashanah.
On October 4 we will experiment with a new kind of congregational meeting – online, born of necessity, which will provide us an opportunity to talk about our possible futures.
Please take advantage of the retreat this Saturday, September 19, led by Rev. Karen Foster, from 10 am to 12 noon, which has been designed as a spiritual time out for refreshment and renewal.
On this Sunday, September 20, the sermon “First, Last, Always” is based on Matthew 20:1-16. Jesus offers advice about handling resentment and offers a new vision of community in which “the first shall be last, and the last shall be first.”
Hope to see you at the retreat this Saturday and at church this Sunday.
Rev. Jim Mitulski
