December 17 Bulletin

Posted by on Dec 14, 2017 in Bulletins |

“Rejoice always,” begins the reading from First Thessalonians. Isaiah and the psalmist make clear that God is turning our mourning into laughter and shouts of joy. “All God’s children got a robe,” go the words of the spiritual. It is not so much a stately, formal, pressed outfit as it is a set of party clothes, clothes that make us feel happy just to put...

December 10 Bulletin

Posted by on Dec 7, 2017 in Bulletins |

John called people to repent, to clear the decks, to completely reorder their lives so that nothing would get in the way of the Lord’s coming.

Isaiah calls us all to...

All Saints celebrates the baptized people of God, living and dead, who are the body of Christ. As November heralds the dying of the landscape in many northern regions, the readings and liturgy call us to remember all who have died in Christ and whose baptism is complete.

October 29 Bulletin

Posted by on Oct 26, 2017 in Bulletins |

On this day we celebrate the heart of our faith: the gospel of Christ—the good news—that makes us free! We pray that the Holy Spirit would continue to unite the church today in its proclamation and witness to the world. In the waters of baptism we are made one body; we pray for the day that all Christians will also be one at the Lord’s table. Oct 29...
