Sunday Worship

Lesson:Genesis 22:1-14
Message: Faith Enough

It is so wonderful to be back again among my faith community! Thank you all so much for the much appreciated time off to visit and catch up with our Brazilian family, see new parts of this beautiful Brazil, and marinate in the love of Itamar’s family. I wish I could tell you all stories of the “best parts” of our trip, but, honestly, the best parts always included lots of family, lots of laughter, and ALWAYS LOTS of food!

I hope you are enjoying this summer. New England has limited beach/lake days and I am a firm supporter of taking advantage of each of these. Having said that, if you’re around on Sundays and join us for worship we’ve loved seeing you and celebrating our faith together! This Sunday we get another hard story from Genesis (though not as hard as last week’s!)… Our ancestors wondered about what is required of us as faithful people and so told this story, the story of the Binding of Isaac, to explain not only what is required but how utterly impossible it seems at times to follow God’s call of faith.

Join us on Sunday in our newly AIR CONDITIONED Parish Hall for fellowship, singing, smiles, sharing. See you Sunday!
