In this emergency
During the weeks of the coronavirus 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.
During these 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.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was thrown into the sea and caught fish of every kind. Matthew 13: 47
We hear more stories on Sunday. This section of Matthew is packed with short image-parables that we’ve heard many times before. For those of us whose hearts are fed by scripture, we can’t wait to hear them again.
We’ll give some thought to the story-tellers in our lives. Who tells you stories? To whom do you tell stories? Have you heard new stories or old stories this summer, or both? Who are the storytellers in our culture, our community, your social circles? What role do they play? What special status do they have?
Our summer soloist this Sunday is Olivia Canning. We look forward to hearing her play the piano. Next week it’s Dave Scheidemantel.
Bob Holmgren will lead the hymns and the liturgy. Kathryn is in the middle of her composer’s conference weeks at Wellesley College. http://www.composersconference.org/
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Wayland Food Pantry recently. We filled up the basket in two weeks. Your contributions are appreciated during the summer months.
Midweek communion Wednesday at 7 pm. Thank you to those of you who have attended and/or indicated your approval of these services. The central Christian liturgy is a flexible ritual, a universal, eternal order of observance that may be elaborate and festive or simple and quiet, dressed up or casual. Even in the few weeks of our midweek services at Peace we have begun to learn a new tone and spirit of worship together, new ways of prayer and new ways to support one another.
