We celebrated World Communion Sunday last Sunday. I love that Communion Sunday because it reminds us in such a beautiful and concrete manner of the sheer size and magnitude of the Christian family on this planet.
It humbles me to think of all the different ways God has worked in such a diverse variety of cultures through Christ to make us all brothers and sisters in one family. Such is the divine love for each of us.
You will certainly want to join us Sunday morning as we continue the sermon series, “People Worth Knowing.” Each week we are looking at biblical characters and contemporary characters that embody Christian characteristics.
Last week we took a look at Joseph in Genesis. This week we move to Hannah in 1st Samuel 1:4-20. It is a great story for us to explore, and it helps us weigh each person’s importance in the world and God’s work among us. I think you will find this an inspiring story to encounter.
We also will observe Disability Awareness Sunday in both worship services at 8:30 and 11:00. Through the efforts of our Special Needs Council and their staff person Paula Gradney-Garner, we are making strides in welcoming families with individuals with special needs.
We are excited about the possibilities of being a church family that makes it feasible for others, who are often precluded from church, to join us in the Boston Avenue family. I hope that you have a great week, and that I will get to greet you Sunday!
