Hello there,

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone who ever had a mother, and we give thanks to God for all the wonderful women who had a part in our growing up; mothers, of course, but also sisters, aunts, grandmothers, cousins, teachers, coaches, mentors, neighbors, friends, all those who loved us, nurtured us and help us be who we are today.

We have a great Sunday coming up.  At the first service we have a quartette from the Chancel Bell choir bringing some beautiful music.  Hand bell music is always so bright, joyful and lifting to the spirit.  I will be preaching on John 14:1-14.  It is a familiar text as it is often read at memorial services, but not often used as the text for a sermon on Sunday morning. 

I am also beginning a two part adult forum between the worship services on “How to Listen to a Sermon.”  Just why do we have sermons at the center of our worship.  Have you ever thought about it?  And just what is supposed to happen when I go up into the pulpit preach?  What am I trying to accomplish?  What should you be listening for during a sermon?  I will be answering some of these questions and more, this Sunday and next, at around 10:15 down in the chapel.

Finally, don’t forget juice boxes.  We are trying to collect 175 packs of juice boxes to support the FLY lunch program.  The goal is 175 as we celebrate our 175th anniversary this year.

Stay in One Peace,

Howard
