Clinton Heights Lutheran Church family and friends,
This coming Sunday, August 9, is the Tenth Sunday
after Pentecost. The two passages I plan to
focus on for my message are ...1.) the story
of Elijah hiding from Jezebel and from God in
a cave where he encounters God's presence in
the sound of sheer silence ... or the still
small voice of calm. And ... 2.) Jesus' miracle
of walking on water from Matthew 14. Fear, faith
and the promises of Jesus that he will never
allow us to fail - all good words for these
times that we are in.
am rather excited to try something new on August
16 when we meet in person for outdoor worship.
Instead of pre-recording an indoor service the
day before, I plan to live-stream the outdoor
worship service and share that link afterward,
like we have done with our indoor services.
There are a couple of reasons for this - one
is that I don't want to overly burden our organist
and other volunteers by adding another time
for us to video a worship service. The other
is that I think folks who are not able to come
in person would like to get the outdoor experience.
We will see how it turns out!
Transition Task Force will be meeting in a couple
of weeks to discuss a couple of items, one of
which is the question, "How could we safely
celebrate Holy Communion at some of our worship
services?" We have had worship without
this sacrament for nearly four months now, and
if you are like me, you have missed experiencing
Jesus' presence in the elements of this holy
meal. Stay tuned for more news coming about
this in the near future ...
is the bulletin for Sunday's worship service
- I will see you online!!
