Thought for the day
“But ask the animals, and they will teach you; the bird of the air, and they will tell you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. In his hand is the life of every living thing.” –Job 12:7, 8b, 10a

Worship On Sunday
October 4, 2015
“Creation: Animals” 1 Corinthians 1:10-23; Luke 12:22-31 Rev. Dr. Leigh Ann Shaw
World Communion Sunday and the celebration of St. Francis of Assisi Sunday. Our special and regular communion offering will go for scholarships. The United Methodist Church pledges this special offering as an investment in the future leadership of our church and global community. These scholarships support racially and ethnically diverse students and equip students to be world-changers. You are invited to participate in a special blessing of the animals by bringing in a picture of your furry friend and member of the family. Whether you have a turtle, bird, lizard, horse, guinea pig, cat, dog or other animal, bring a picture to participate in this special moment in worship. Pastor Leigh Ann will invite you forward during worship for a prayer and blessing and then you are welcome to hang the picture of your animal in the sanctuary after worship.

Sunday Gathering – We will begin an eight week study using The Parables of Dr. Seuss by Robert L. Short (2008) on Sunday, October 4 at 12 pm around the library table. The author sees parallels between stories like “Green Eggs and Ham” and Jesus’ instructions in the book of John to “eat my body and drink my blood”; asking the people to trust and to try something new. Join us as we explore several Seuss stories, including whether “Lorax” might be an acronym for the “Lord and Christ” and whether that simple story about environmental responsibility is actually a parable about Christian faith. All adults are welcome! As many of us have already read Bible parables as well as Seuss stories, we’re looking forward to your questions, comments and ideas! Please do let Peggy Watson, facilitator, know if you will be a part of this study so that she may order the correct number of books. Bring your lunch or snack and be prepared for wonderful fellowship and learning!
