Come and Eat! That has to be 3 of our favorite words! I know they are mine. And beginning this Wednesday, that is what we will be saying as our Wednesday suppers resume. And we resume in a grand way, with a “Pet Blessing” service in the Memorial Garden at 5:30. Bring your pet, furry, feathered, or otherwise, for a blessing and to celebrate all of God’s creatures.
The Pet Blessing will be followed with a church picnic type of supper beginning at 6pm, with hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, cole slaw, etc. You don’t have to bring anything. A basket will be available to pitch in to help cover some costs. Just show up! Many thanks to Thrivent for sponsoring this kick off event for the season! You will see some of our workers wearing “Live Generously” t-shirts, as a part of the event. “Live Generously”…you’ll be seeing and hearing more about that as this Fall season unfolds.
But the feasting doesn’t end Wednesday evening. This coming weekend at worship we hear another parable from Jesus. This one will be about a wedding banquet. A similar theme, about a banquet, we see in the Isaiah reading also. So, along with Wednesday, the word for the upcoming weekend will also be “Come and Eat!” Come and be fed in body, mind and spirit. See and experience what God is up to.
See you in church! Pastor Jack Diehl +
