Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost

8:00am Holy Eucharist, Rite I
9:15am Holy Eucharist, Rite II
10:30am Holy Eucharist Rite II
10:30am The Gathering, Holy Eucharist
Tonight is our occasional MOVIE NIGHT for the Wednesday Nightprogram. We will be showing “A Man Called Ove.” This Swedish comedy (PG-13) won best foreign film in 2016. I have watched it and can guarantee it is both good humor and very meaningful. It runs just under two hours long, so come to the parish hall by 5:45, we will have supper ready to serve (and popcorn for the tables). Movie will begin right after 6:00 and we will be finished a short discussion and gone by 8:10. We will have a sitter so don’t let that stop you. Don’t miss this one! It will be a perfect night of thoughtful entertainment. (It is Swedish with English subtitles – but I also bought us a new HD projector that will make the picture higher and larger than ever!)
This Sunday the leaders are challenging Jesus again – this time about paying taxes. How timely!  Fred will be in the Church and I’ve got the Gathering again. (Ashley is on vacation in Oklahoma for 2 weeks.)
Paul Hudgins and I are also working to create a different musical identity for 9:15. I’m playing guitar and working with him and Meredith and maybe some others for the next 5 Sundays. We will use some newer music and Taizé chants to make the music more singable and hopefully enable experience of the “holy” through some new music. We will still use plenty of traditional Hymnal music but add some creative touches.
See you tonight, I hope! … and Sunday too!
Peace and blessings,
