Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper  You are invited to prepare bread and wine/juice/water to receive communion at home.
Scripture 2 Corinthians 13:11-13
Sermon  A Daring Blessing
On Trinity Sunday, we encounter the mystery of the Christian understanding of “one God in three persons” by reading the source of the most frequently used benediction in the history of the church: “May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you.” We hear this so often that we may not recognize the remarkable implications of the words.

Scripture  Acts 17:22-31                           
Sermon  Notes on an Unknown God
In the Easter season the church often reads from the story of the early church in the Acts of the Apostles. Here Paul is in Athens, and in the midst of that marketplace of ideas and religions (and in the marketplace of the city), Paul finds a compelling way to speak of the Christian God. Today’s marketplace offers similar varieties of expression – and similar opportunities for God’s Spirit to speak to the restless human spirit.
