Sunday we come to another of Paul’s shining missives. In his letter to urban Christians in Corinth we hear a loud clashing of ideas and ideologies, of commerce and politics. Paul was not a quiet pastoralist. He challenged all the sophisticates and the philosophers, the leaders of the synagogue and the secularists, on their own terms, with the gospel of Jesus Christ that was burning in his heart. On Sunday we’ll take up the second lesson from 1 Corinthians with special reference to the cross as a symbol and conceptual center of the Christian faith. With the energy locked in Paul’s words about the cross, Martin Luther poured out the reforms–the ideas and the protests–that would establish a new branch of the Christian church.

In this emergency
During the weeks of the COVID-19 restrictions, Sunday worship is conducted in a Zoom meeting. Members and friends on our mailing list receive Zoom invitations. If you would like to attend the service online, send your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be added to the invitation list.
Confirmation and faith formation meetings are held on Zoom.
As we pass through days of isolation, members and friends of the congregation are encouraged to pray and meditate on scripture and to explore some of the spiritual treasures of our faith.
Keep in mind those who live alone. Telephone calls and emails between members and friends of the church keep connections strong and support those in need.
When routines change, patience and forbearance help us get along. If you are together for long periods of time in the house, take advantage of the time. Enjoy one another.
If you or someone you know needs assistance, members of Peace might be able to help. Pastor Johnson’s cell is 978/460-1118.
