Beloved of Christ,      

I am hoping you had a few moments to settle into the “path of totality” this week.  If not, you will get that opportunity in worship this week.  Thank you Lord for your healing rains the past couple of nights.

Due to the spread of Covid-19, we have not been able to celebrate a 5th Sunday of the month yet this year.  Well . . . . we get that chance tomorrow.  I started a "semi-tradition" last year and we are planning on it tomorrow.  Since it is the 5th Sunday, our message will actually be "Ask the Pastor."  I will be taking your theological questions that you have been pondering.  I will try hard to get to as many questions as possible.  What is kind of cool about it this time, is that I can receive questions for those of you at home and in person worship.  One other note - Our 5th Sunday special offering will be going toward the purchase of food for the upcoming Abraham Connection shelter season.  Our AC Breakfast team will use the offering to purchase food when we prepare the breakfasts for our homeless community.

We are blessed to be able to gather both in person and on-line in worship.  Those of you who are joining us on-line, please find attached the worship guide (click here) for tomorrow's worship.  Just a reminder for those who are joining us for in-person worship, the Governor's mask mandate is still in place and masks are required during worship.  Please remember to wear your mask and if you forget yours, there are a few extra at the table as you enter the narthex.
