This Sunday (7/27): The End of Irony

Posted by David Lewicki in This Week, Worship. | Leave a comment |

Beach of Irony Jesus tells parables. The parables are often counter-intuitive. If we took them seriously, they might send our lives spinning off course. Which is hard. But the question is: would that new course be better than the one we’re currently on, full of irony and self-delusion?

Worship this Sunday begins at 10am. Rev. Lewicki will be preaching Matthew 13. There is a time of friendship and sipping cold drinks… slowly… to follow.

The nursery is open for babies. Children 1st-grade and under leave worship before the sermon.

See you Sunday. First-time visitors are always welcome!

This Sunday (7/20) – Weeds

Posted by David Lewicki in This Week, Worship. | Leave a comment |

weeds-backlight-morning.jpg Jesus tells a story in which wheat and weeds grow together in a field. When the field’s caretaker is asked if the weeds should be picked, the answer is “no… let them grow with the wheat.” Life is full of weeds that we’d love to pluck out. But perhaps there is a reason they are there. Why are the weeds important?

Worship this Sunday begins at 10am. Rev. Lewicki will be preaching Matthew 13. We celebrate the joyful sacrament of baptism with one of our families. There is a time of friendship and sipping cold drinks… slowly… to follow.

The nursery is open for babies. Children 1st-grade and under leave worship before the sermon.

See you Sunday. First-time visitors are always welcome!

This Sunday (7/13): Seeing Clearly

Posted by David Lewicki in This Week, Worship. | Leave a comment |

plain space In the Bible, one of the most powerful recurrent metaphors is that of “seeing.” It can involve actual sight, but it’s not synonymous with it. People who have no sight can “see” and people with 20/20 vision can be sightless. Seeing is discerning, knowing. It is perceiving what outside of us is real and trustworthy. Many things get in the way of seeing clearly – obstacles from within and without. This Sunday, we explore seeing through the metaphor of the veil – the thin cloth that allows light but conceals details.

Worship on Sunday begins at 10am. There is a time of friendship and sipping cold drinks to follow to which all are welcome, especially visitors and those wishing to get to know more about the church. The nursery is open for babies. Children 1st-grade and under leave worship for age-appropriate worship.

For the brave souls among you, Sunday is our first-ever NDPC Waste Audit. We are taking 10 volunteers (kids included) who want to go dumpster-diving after church to see what’s in the church’s trash. All of it will be supervised by the Rev. Kate McGregor Mosley and the outcome will shape our future waste policy. Contact Kate or Jennifer Ayres to sign up.

See y’all on Sunday.
