We invite you to join us on Sunday, August 20 at our 10:00 a.m. worship service and a continuation of the sermon series Last Things.
In the sermon series, we are exploring the question — at the end of your life, how would you like to be remembered? More information about the series is provided at the end of this article.
This week, Rev. David J. Hanna will deliver the sermon Last Things: Parachutes & Rocks.
Whether we know it or not, from every corner of our life voices clamor for our attention, clamor for our trust. The tempting whispers and loud shouts come from news media, social media, and advertising schemes. Cultural norms talk. Material possessions and money talk. The Rat Race talks. Keeping up with the Jones talks. Political figures and Hollywood personalities talk. All saying, in one way or another, put your trust in me. Put your hope in me. Let me pack your parachute.
Following the service, everyone is invited to gather in the Chalice Room next to the Sanctuary for fellowship.
Please note adult Christian Education programs are suspended and will resume in September.
About this sermon series Last Things:
The idea for series is based on a program that was held at Union Seminary in Richmond, Virginia to engage students and faculty in an activity outside of the classroom and academic arena to discuss life experience and faith at a more informal level.
This program was called Last Things. It became not only a very popular activity on the seminary campus but a deeply moving experience.
This is how it worked: A faculty member was invited by the student body to share about life’s last things by talking about the following question: At the end of your life, how would you like to be remembered? That’s a great question demanding meaningful and profound soul searching. How would you answer it? How would you like to be remembered? How would you like your life to be summed up?
