Worker in a Vineyard. Adolphe Valette. 1876-1942.
‘What do you think? A man had two sons; he went to the first and said, “Son, go and work in the vineyard today.” He answered, “I will not”; but later he changed his mind and went. The father went to the second and said the same; and he answered, “I go, sir”; but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?’ They said, ‘The first.’ Jesus said to them, ‘Truly I tell you, the tax-collectors and the prostitutes are going into the kingdom of God ahead of you. For John came to you in the way of righteousness and you did not believe him, but the tax-collectors and the prostitutes believed him; and even after you saw it, you did not change your minds and believe him.” ~ Matthew 21:28-32
“See you later” usually means “goodbye.” In the context of the Bible passage above, however, it means so much more. It implies that we will see – later on – if you actually meant what you said.
Join us this Sunday as we welcome the Rev. Dr. Paul Kern to once again lead our service. He will speak about how we can discover God’s will as workers in the vineyard, and how God’s ultmate will for us is to repent and believe.
Being the first Sunday of the month, as is the custom at St. Andrew’s, we will also be celebrating Communion. We continue to provide individual, sealed Communion packets as you enter the sanctuary. Alternatively, we encourage you to bring your elements from home to use during the service. And if you are joining online, perhaps take a moment before the service to prepare a cup and some bread, so that you may commune with us.

We invite you to join in worship, study and service as you are able.
