We have the joy of baptizing two of God’s children during our worship service this Sunday – Luke and Bria Miller (Joan and John Miller’s grandchildren). Rev. Will will reflect with us on the broadening of “familial” bonds that baptism creates in the church.
And speaking of familial bonds, we also remember our Jewish siblings who begin their high holy days on Sunday evening. Jane Ring Frank offers an introduction to the anthem the choir will sing: The “ten days of repentance” or “the days of awe” include Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and the days in between, during which time Jews meditate on the subject of the holy days and ask for forgiveness from anyone they have wronged. The choir’s anthem, “Mi Shebeirach,” is one of the primary Hebrew prayers for healing, asking God to restore and strengthen the body, mind, and soul, most often during Shabbat and High Holy Day services.
We hope you’ll join us for this rich service on Sunday at 10am in the sanctuary or online whenever you can!
