Last week we ordained and installed some of our leaders for the next few years. Kevin Kim and Jennifer Herzig were ordained and installed to the office of Deacon, serving for one year. Also to be installed as Deacons for a one year term of service are Anne Camelio, Val Donovan and Salam Lebbos.
Joshua Herzig was ordained and installed to the office of Elder, serving for a three year term. Ruth Allen agreed to another three year term of Elder. She was installed again. Currently serving elders on Session include Liz Cavano, Craig Milanesi, Ellen Schemerhorn and Randy Winchester. We heartily thank Jill Auger for her six years of service on Session.
Sermon: “Weapons of the Meek”
Scriptures: Mathew 5:38-48; Leviticus 19:1-2,9-18
The lectionary readings this week keep us focused on Matthew’s version of the Sermon on the Mount. These passages have sometimes been used to characterize the Christian life in a rather passive way — justifying domestic violence even! To live in the ways that Jesus is suggesting is anything but passive!
Join us for worship on Sunday, February 23rd at 10:30 a.m. and for coffee and fellowship after the service.
