Balance Beam

February 5, 2016


Blessings to you all,


This Sunday the scripture passage is:  Luke 9:28-43a.  This is the Transfiguration story with a vital addendum.  The title of the Message is “Balance Beam.”  “Beam” has a number of different meanings.  The Deacons have have purchased copies of the UCC Lenten Devotional book to hand out to anyone interested.  We will have Communion this Sunday (if you want to support the Deacons’ Fund you certainly can do that using the envelopes in the pews).  The Deacons will also be having Chessy Kelley here from 11:00 – 11:30 offering a Meditation Workshop (CHILD CARE WILL BE PROVIDED).  If all of that was not enough – we will have the “Affirmation of Ministry” service within worship.  This is a special service (litany) recognizing and installing the newly elected officers, and board and committee members.  The “Laying on of Hands” will also be included for the elected Deacons. 


Can you believe that, I went through the entire description of this Sunday morning’ service without piling on and referencing the “Super Bowl” or Kick-off your Sunday in worship – or balance those chicken wings with a healthy diet of Communion.  I will not stoop that low.


See you all on this Fantastic Sunday,


In Faith,
