Sunday, November 5 is St. Andrew’s Sunday our annual celebration of our rich Scottish heritage!
We celebrate because today’s Calvary Presbyterian Church is the result, in part, of the Scottish Reformation and the leadership of John Knox. At the time, Presbyterianism, a representative form of government, grew and became a model for the formation of the Church of Scotland. As has been our tradition there will be a high tea following worship. The service will include bagpipes and Gaelic music. Wearing Scottish attire is encouraged, but not required.
Rev. David J. Hanna will deliver the sermon Money Can’t Buy: Don’t Shrink Back.
We manage the significant challenges pretty well, only to be thwarted by daily annoyances. We take it easy when the demands are not difficult. We tend to let down and to step back. We may fail in ways we often would not when the pressure is on. Here is a warning from Hebrews: beware when things are just ordinary; beware when no big problem confronts you; beware when you drift into the ruts of your routine. Don’t shrink back. Don’t allow your faith to retreat.
Following the service, please join us in the Chalice Room next to the Sanctuary for high tea!
