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.
