All In ……….. June 26, 2022 ………..3rd Sunday after Pentecost 2 Kings 2: 1-14; Luke 9: 51-62 ……….. Rev. Susan Taylor So, I’m a bit of a TV nerd, and one of the few shows I watch on a regular basis is “Jeopardy!”  While I haven’t been as avid a fan since the devastating loss of Alex Trebek, I was among the millions of viewers who tuned in a few years back to watch James Holzhauer, a professional sports gambler…

Clothing for God’s Children

June 19, 2022 ………. Fathers’ Day ……… Rev. Patrick Mecham Second Sunday after Pentecost Galatians 3: 23-29; Luke 8: 26-39 Today is Fathers’ Day, a day in which we honor fathers for the legacy they leave their children.  It is a day to honor all fathers and father-figures—step-fathers, grandfathers who helped raise their grandchildren, teachers, scout leaders, all those who have helped to nurture a younger generation, who have given them more than just genetic material, who have provided them…

Growing into the Faith

June 12, 2022 ……….Trinity Sunday ………. Rev. Patrick Mecham Romans 5: 1-5; John 16: 12-15 A philosopher named Friedrich Nietzsche once wrote a phrase that has been quoted since the 1880’s: “That which does not kill me makes me stronger.”  In the 1990’s, Disney produced an animated film called “Aladdin,” and the parrot (Iago) put his own spin on the saying, “You’d be surprised what you can live through!” Just recently, I heard a “Seasoned-Citizen” saying something similar: “Getting old…

Quilting

Calling All Quilters, Knitters and Crocheters!

The SSPC Deacons would like to continue the tradition of distributing quilts, lap blankets, shoulder shawls to those in need. In order to be able to continue with this tradition, new quilts or crocheted or knitted lap blankets & shoulder shawls need to be made. This will be an on-going project throughout the year. At the end of the year, any quilts/lap blankets/shawls, that have been made, will be distributed to those in the congregation who might have a need…

Time to Retire

Well, my SSPC family, it is getting to be time for me to retire. I turn 69 in August, and, while some pastors stay “in the harness” well into their later years, I am certain that this is the right time for me. Your generosity in giving me an extra two weeks of vacation every year has made it possible to spend more time with our grandkids—thus enabling me to postpone retirement for a few years. I plan to stay…

The Pastor’s Perspective An Occasional Note Regarding Activities, News, Rumors, and Juicy Tidbits from Pastor Pat December 23, 2020 It’s a Boy! You may remember that, in a previous issue, we informed you that we are going to be grandparents again.  Our daughter and son-in-law are expecting their first child in May (on or around Mothers’ Day), and the latest ultrasound revealed that it is a boy!  While we would be happy with either gender, we are delighted that we…
