“Observe the sabbath day and keep it holy, as the Lord your God commanded you. For six days you shall labour and do all your work. But the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall not do any work—you, or your son or your daughter, or your male or female slave, or your ox or your donkey, or any of your livestock, or the resident alien in your towns, so that your male and female slave may rest as well as you. Remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God brought you out from there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm; therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the sabbath day.”     ~Deuteronomy 5:12-15
This week we explore the Sabbath. How well do any of us keep the sabbath? We often find ways to slip around the full sense of rest on the sabbath. The idea of taking time to show praise and honour to God is our true sabbath. How might we do that authentically when we keep the sabbath?
Being the first Sunday in June, we will also celebrate Holy Communion. We have returned to the practice of serving from a common plate. You are absolutely welcome to bring your elements from home if you prefer. And, if you are watching the service online, perhaps take a moment before the service to prepare some bread and a cup so that you might Commune with us.
Organ preludes will begin around 10:25 a.m. and the service will commence at 10:30 a.m.  The link for this morning’s service is: https://youtube.com/live/T55ycjVVRes?feature=share
