Sunday October 26
This Sunday is October 26.  We’ll be reading and reflecting on Leviticus 19: 1-4; 9-18 and Matthew 23: 1-12 as we begin our reflection on the Lord’s Prayer.  This Sunday’s reflection will focus on the title “Father” for God—both the problematic nature of using “Father” as God’s title for those of us seeking gender-equality, and the problematic nature of simply changing that title to a gender-inclusive or gender-neutral term.  After worship, those who would like to gather to respond to the reflection and discuss the Lord’s Prayer will gather in the adult Sunday School classroom.
