The Return of the Prodigal Son – Rembrandt van Rijn, 1669.
“Then the son said to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.” But the father said to his slaves, “Quickly, bring out a robe—the best one—and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. And get the fatted calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate; for this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found!” And they began to celebrate.” Luke 15:21-23.
This is a special Sunday – Mother’s Day, a Baptism, and Communion! Rev. Heather Kern speak to us about how women, made in God’s image, are also an example of the love of God. She will also officiate at 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.
The Rev. Dr. Paul Kern will be officiating the baptism.
We are enormously grateful to Paul, and Heather Kern, for guiding our worship on the first two Sundays of every month during this time of transition. Their words and presence are a blessing to us.
Organ preludes will begin around 10:25 a.m. and the service will commence at 10:30 a.m. This is the link for this morning’s service is: https://youtube.com/live/YJo3rWz5xss?feature=share
