Dear St. Andrew's Community and Beyond:
We are in an unprecedented pandemic, which has quickly become a backdrop to an intense upheaval in unrest, demonstrations and debate about the tragic realities of race in our society. As I went through the last week, I felt drawn to the act of kneeling and all it can mean. That led me in turn to think of what follows kneeling: standing. So the message for this week is "A Time to Kneel and A Time to Stand."
Judith Muller is the reader and will be sharing the celebration of communion with me. As before, we encourage you to bring your own bread and cup to the viewing of the service so you can participate with us.
Chris will offer another prelude, and Erin will join him to lead us in "How Majestic Is Your Name," "Thy Word" and "Amazing Grace."
I will share with you and Disciple Dog some of the things he does that impress me as we go about our lives in our neighborhood.
The art is a combination of drawings and news photos.
I hope the service will give us some clarity about where we are and how we can respond as we seek healing, justice and wisdom for our country and our world.
