…do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not make room for the devil. Ephesian 4: 26
We’re reading in Ephesians during these summer weeks. Sunday we come to some practical teachings. How shall we live? What kind of people should we be? How might we adjust our behavior to conform to the example that we have in Christ? If we are Christians, then we should allow the spirit of God to direct us into Christian behavior. Right?
The passage for Sunday continues, “Let no evil talk come out your mouths, but only what is useful for building up…so your words may give grace to those who hear….put away bitterness and wrath and anger and wrangling and slander…be kind to one another…”
Sunday Jonathan and Aidan Moretz will play for us. Heather will lead us in singing the hymn of the day, based on the appointed psalm.
The prayer group meets Sunday at 11 am. Carol Green will put note cards and a box in a mailbox marked “Prayers”. Write your prayer concern or request there for Carol to bring to the prayer group.

Kim Canning has been planning for the new year of learning and faith formation for our children. She has been meeting with the leaders of Christian education at St. Paul in Arlington and Lutheran Church of the Newtons for mutual support and exchange of ideas. This year Kim would like to emphasize that faith formation for our children goes beyond Sunday morning. Parents are key players in their child’s spiritual development. As the year of learning gets started, Kim would like to meet with each of our parents to get feedback about our ministry of learning.
In addition to planning, setting schedules, communicating with teachers and setting up the classes, Kim has cleaned out the closet in the last room on the left. Equipment from Little Dove filled up this closet. Riding toys, chairs, easels and other things are on display in the hallway. If you would like to have something from the closet, speak to Kim.
