SERVICES FOR NOVEMBER

9:30 AND 11:00 AM

For the rest of November, we will encounter the Psalms, the voices of the saints who have gone before us. Walter Brueggemann writes in Praying the Psalms: Engaging Scripture and the Life of the Spirit, “The Psalms, with a few exceptions, are not the voice of God addressing us. They are rather the voice of our own common humanity—gathered over a long period of time, but a voice that continues to have amazing authenticity and contemporaneity. It speaks about life the way it really is, for in those deeply human dimensions the same issues and possibilities persist. And so when we turn to the Psalms it means we enter into the midst of that voice of humanity and decide to take our stand with that voice. We are prepared to speak among them and with them and for them, to express our solidarity in this anguished, joyous human pilgrimage. We add a voice to the common elation, shared grief, and communal rage that besets us all.” So together, over the next three weeks, we will set our hopes with Psalm 78; lift up our eyes with Psalm 123; and make a joyful noise with Psalm 100.

Bosque del Apache Trip

Once again we are planning a trip to Bosque del Apache over the Martin Luther King Holiday weekend. We hope to see thousands of snow geese, sand hill cranes and ducks. The sight and sounds of thousands of snow geese passing 30 feet over your head is well worth the trip. It is great fellowship and a chance to be in awe of God’s creation.
