Scripture: 1 Kings 17:8-15 & Luke 21:1-4
It's World Communion Sunday! One of our favorite days at Saint Andrew. We celebrate our Disciples of Christ heritage as people who gather at an open table, every week. And on this day in particular, we are mindful of the ways that sacred meal connects us to people of faith all over the world.
As we continue the #Ourfamilyvalues series, we will focus this week on our shared values of gratitude and generosity. We'll hear stories--some from the Bible, some from around the globe, and even some from our own community--about the transformative powers of sharing our abundance. Or in some cases, even sharing out of some kind of scarcity. And at the center of that hopeful narrative--there is a table filled with bread. Bread from all over the world, and bread enough to share with our neighbors.
It's kind of fitting that it's also AppleFest Sunday! What better time to celebrate our ministry with the Migrant Farmworkers Program. Don't forget--we are also collecting dried beans and rice to share with MFP.
Meanwhile--what is your favorite 'abundance' story? And how do you put your generosity into practice, every day? Come Sunday, and we will all be grateful, together. - Rev. Erin Wathen, Senior Pastor
