shops that sell ugg boots Sunday sermon inspired
In a nod to Monday celestial phenomenon, Pastor Linda Ford will give a sermon titled Sunday at the Fortuna United Methodist Church, 10th and N streets. Ford selected the scripture from Genesis 1:14 19.
eclipse, though rare in our region of the world, is part of the natural order put in place by God and it seems appropriate to use the story of creation as we prepare to view this event, Ford said.
She added: ancestors sometimes trembled with fear at sundown, the winter waning of the sun and the occasional eclipse. Science now explains and predicts the process. We can appreciate what science brings us, but it doesn replace wonder for the light of our creator Shadows may fall upon our perceptions, but God light cannot be overcome the eclipse is a giant metaphor of this truth. On Sunday,
as we engage with images of light and shadow, we will recall as well that Jesus called his followers to also be bearers of light.
Ford is in her fourth year as pastor at the Fortuna United Methodist Church, which she calls Christian community of great love and warmth. feel honored to serve here, she said. Sunday, we worship God and have a time of fellowship. A few months ago, we added a time during worship for sharing stories about situations and people who represent what God calls us to be. These come from personal experiences and from the news. There is good news in the world that reflects the greater good news of God.
In September, she said, other activities will resume at the church, including choir rehearsals,
Wednesday morning Bible study and a Saturday book/film discussion group.
