“Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you and account of the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and reverence.” ~1 Peter 15, 16
“Tell me a story!” I have a young adult friend who often says this to me. She’s looking for stories about me. About my life. About my faith journey. For her, in order to get to know someone – to really get to know them – she believes that you need to know their stories. And she’s right! How we live, how we act, how we recount our experiences – these add up to give a better picture of us – of who we really are. 
The Bible is full of stories – good, bad, happy, sad, encouraging, disappointing, covering nearly every aspect of human existence – and we can learn something from each of them. We also have stories to tell. Stories of our own Christian testimony. Stories we can share with others, but which also help remind us of God’s faithfulness and presence in our lives.
This Sunday, join us as the Rev. Heather Kern leads our worship and shares with us what it means to her to answer the query: “Tell me a story!” As always, we are grateful to Heather for helping guide us through this time of transition. We look forward to her gift of words and insight to us.
Thanks also to Elaine and Rev. Bob, of our congregation, for contributing to our worship this week.
Being the first Sunday in August, 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.
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/COra1XkaG3w?feature=share
