Words for the Week – May 9, 2019

Confirmation is this Sunday! Two eight graders will be confirmed at the 10:30 am worship service.  They will give their faith statements  – always a powerful event – and I will give a brief homily on listening to the voice of God in young people.

Also, we will recognize the adults who completed a year-long confirmation-like class called Faith Foundations.  I will offer this class again next year.  Sunday, I will give a preview during Adult Forum, when I will teach a mini-lesson on two thousand years of church history in 30 minutes. 

Last week, Seminarian Jon Nerdig gave a beautiful, personal sermon on conversion and call.  He emphasized that Christ not only comes to us in dramatic moments, but also in the ordinary moments of our days.  Listen to his sermon here.

See you in church,

Pastor Sarah
