This Sunday is our last pre-recorded worship service. This is good news on several fronts, not the least of which is that it relieves Scott Eschbach of a time-consuming task. Since the crisis of 2020 began, Scott has been the force behind the continuation of worship. Week after week he recorded with me; then he took all the files, spliced them together, added text and music, created the link, sent the email, and VOILA! We had worship. Each Sunday's 30-40 minute service represented hours of labor. When he took a break during the holidays we had to hire someone to do all that he did without complaint. I don't have to tell you how faithful, persevering, and hard-working Scott is. We all owe him a debt of gratitude.
Now that he is done with recording worship, he can go back to just being business manager, treasurer to the Presbytery, chair of personnel, overseer of technology, general problem solver, and trusted confidant to all.
Thank you Scott! May God reward your labor richly!
Adult Education. This Sunday, we will continue a series from Faith and Reason on The Ten Commandments: Laws of the Heart featuring Joan Chittister answering the questions
• Are the Ten Commandments antiquated and obsolete?
• Do they have anything useful for us in the 21st century?
• How did they come to be, and what was their original purpose?
• Have the Ten commandments evolved?
In this series, Joan Chittister, OSB, invites us to think deeply about the moral fibers of our society. She presents the idea that the Ten Commandments are an adventure in human growth and that we are not so much convicted by them as we are transformed by them. “What does it mean to us, to the world, to preserve the Ten Commandments as the bedrock of our civilization?” Sr. Joan offers an honest and refreshing approach to the Ten Commandments unlike anything else today. Today’s lesson will be on the 6th and 7th Commandments, You Shall Not Commit Adultery and You Shall not Steal.
Please join us Sunday right after Coffee Hour at 11 AM on Zoom!
