Dear St. Andrew's Community and Beyond:

A number of years ago I heard a folk tale about a farmer, his son and a horse. It's a simple little tale, but quite evocative in terms of the theme.  I've thought of it often, but also felt that it was missing something.  So this week I'll share the story and how it relates to the mythic "Wheel of Fortune" and add an element at the core of our faith.

Tom Weisenberger is the liturgist.

Disciple Dog shares the unique way he practices gratitude regardless of what he finds in his dog dish.

We have two hymns: the lyrical, contemporary song "God of the Sparrow" and the beautiful classic, "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing."  Chris and Erin lead us.  We also can hear another one of Chris' piano solos.

Coffee hour and adult education Zoom links are below, as well as information about the Zoom baby shower for Erin Sunday afternoon.

Blessings on your midsummer weekend.

Adult Education...

"Uppity Women of the Bible" presents scholarship, humor and fresh insights on some of the most colorful women from the Bible.

Uppity Women of the Bible is a four volume DVD-based series from Living the Questions featuring Hebrew Bible professor Dr. Lisa Wolfe.  This lively commentary encompasses four major books focusing on women in the Hebrew Bible and Apocrypha.  Each section in the volume addresses the biblical text in detail and draws connections from the world of ancient audiences to that of present-day readers.  Wolfe's research is motivated by the usual inquiries of biblical scholarship, as well as the questions raised by the many church Bible study groups she has taught.  Combining careful scholarship with humor and fresh insights, Dr. Wolfe presents the opportunity for lively and thoughtful discussions of Ruth, The Song of Songs, Judith and Esther.  The Syllabus for the first volume, Ruth, is here.

The Adult Education Committee will begin this series on July 12, 2020. Please join us on Zoom at 11 AM on Sundays!
