Grace and peace. Sunday marked the beginning of the Way of Love. The snow gave us an interesting start as there were only seventeen people at our 10am service on Sunday. Many of you were able to follow along by listening to the sermon online. The first week was about setting our attention on the importance of a rule of life. I have also heard from many of you who are now receiving the daily devotions in your email box each weekday morning. The Way of Love is about deepening your life by paying attention to love.
As I read this morning a portion of a sermon preached by Martin Luther King, Jr. about the importance of love at our Wednesday morning service, I was reminded of how important love was to his enduring message and how essential it is to our current situation, too.
Speaking of Martin Luther King, this Monday (January 21) youth (Grade 5 and older) are invited to a day of service at the Washington Hebrew Congregation from 9am-noon. We have made this an annual tradition for several years. I hope that our youth will continue this important testimony this year, too. Sign up today.
I hope to see you on Sunday as the Rev. Jenifer Gamber will explore “Turn,” the first of the seven practices of the Way of Love.
