This Sunday, October 4, we will celebrate World Communion at our worship at 10:30 AM. (Please try your best to be there at 10:30 AM). John Buchanan in the most recent journal of “Christian Century, wrote “World Communion Sunday is one of the best ideas that Presbyterians ever had.” The idea originated by the Rev. Hugh Thomson Kerr in the 1930s during a time of economic turmoil and fear and the rise of militaristic fascism abroad. He persuaded the denomination to designate one Sunday when American Christians would remember that they share the Lord’s Table with sisters and brothers from around the world, in many challenging circumstances. The idea caught on and other denominations followed in the 1940s to place World Communion on their calendars.
Following our worship, we will celebrate our great of diversity with an International Luncheon with foods from around the world. If you signed up to bring something for the luncheon, remember to bring it before worship on Sunday. Please join us this Sunday for worship and fellowship.
