Sunday Worship Service

Dear St. Andrew's Community and Friends,

This service is a continuation of the "Glimpses of Paradise" series.  After reflecting on Jacob's dream of being at "Heaven's Gate" (Genesis 28) and an ancient poet beholding the wonder of nature (Psalm 104), we're turning to the New Testament.  We'll let the story of Nathaniel's first encounter with Jesus begin our exploration of what "heaven" meant then and what it might mean now.  The message is called "Openings."

Michelle Hertig is our reader.  Chris and Erin lead us in "This Is My Father's World," "Seek Ye First," and "Take Thou Our Minds, Dear Lord."  Chris opens with a medley of traditional hymn tunes and ends with a contemporary composition.  Disciple Dog tells me about his idea of heaven on a hot day.

Coffee hour and adult education Zoom links are available below.

In the midst of the pandemic, schools reopening, the fires, and the heat wave, I hope you'll be able to find a little glimpse of heaven in the experience.

Steve

Adult Education...

Adult Education This Sunday: Enter into an exotic and fanciful Persian Kingdom complete with a dim-witted king, a defiant queen, an egotistical lieutenant and a loyal uncle. With lavish banquets, extreme beauty treatments and dangerous liaisons at every turn, can the beautiful and courageous Esther avert disaster for her people? All this occurs in a Biblical book where God is never mentioned. Rev. Lisa Wolfe digs deeply and lovingly into this complex story that ranges from slapstick farce to Shakespearian tragedy in Uppity Women of the Bible - Esther. So, grab your Purim gragger and your hamantaschen – if you don’t know what those are, you’ll find out – and join Dr. Wolfe for this fascinating study of power, corruption, violence and courage. Please join us in our zoom Adult Education Class on Sunday August 23rd at 11:00 AM.

The syllabus for the class is available HERE.

Topic: Adult Education Class: Uppity Women of the Bible
