Well, the Fall Program Season has officially begun!
We want to give a great big thank you to everyone who made last weekend’s kick-off such a wonderful success!!!
Now it is on into October, which is our final month with any normality until January. You see, though we have a few big Sundays this month, once we hit November, everything starts getting bigger and keeps on growing until Christmas arrives. Which is perhaps the reason that electric excitement is already buzzing through the air.
However, we do have quite a few things to do in the meantime. For starters, we have a fun imagery story this weekend from Jesus (everyone gather round to start pushing camels through tight spaces) and then we are gearing up for Music Sunday the following week.
So, just for fun, I will give a challenge to all our dedicated readers out there: while it is true I have many favorite hymns, there is one hymn that is my absolute favorite. It is in the Blue Hymnal. If you can correctly guess what it is (first) on Hymn-Sing Sunday, I will guarantee that your favorite Christmas hymn (has to be in the Blue or Purple Presbyterian hymnals) will be included in Lessons & Carols this year on Christmas Eve. Happy Hunting!
And as we continue on, remember the wise words of Francis of Assisi from our sermon last weekend: Preach the gospel at all times; if necessary, use words.
Blessings, Pastor Janie
