August 25th, 2016
Again, we will celebrate Worship with Rev. Sheri Edwards
Dalton leading us. This is the second of two weekends that we are blessed to
have her lead us in Worship. This is our last Sunday of Worship in the month of
August and next weekend will be Labor Day weekend marking the end of summer,
the beginning of Fall and the return to routines.
On the liturgical calendar, we are in what is called
Ordinary time but I happen to think it is anything but ordinary. In fact, one might
say it is extraordinary time. The liturgical color is green which represents
growth, hope, new life e.g. new life with God in His Kingdom. And we are
blessed in the Pacific Northwest in that we have a lot of natural green around
us and a lot of new growth. All this green both in the church and outside the
church reminds us to place our hope in Christ. I have always thought that one
of the best ways to nourish and encourage that growth is to come to worship,
listen to the scriptures that are read, the praise and music played and the
sermon that is shared.
Very appropriately, Rev. Sheri’s sermon is entitled “Invitations”
and you are invited to grow your faith and hope this Sunday @ RPC!
