"The Past Isn't"
400 years ago this year, the chattel slavery of Africans was introduced into the English colonies of North America. But though the Civil War ended the practice of slavery, the shadow of racism, the "original sin" of our nation, still hangs over us. The past may be past, but it's not over.
SCRIPTURE FOR THE DAY:
1 Corinthians 5:6-8
Your boasting is not a good thing. Do you not know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough? Clean out the old yeast so that you may be a new batch, as you really are unleavened. For our paschal lamb, Christ, has been sacrificed. Therefore, let us celebrate the festival, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
After Worship @ 11:30am, in Linden Hall
"Paris to Pittsburgh" Film Discussion
“From coastal cities to America’s heartland, Paris to Pittsburgh celebrates how Americans are demanding and developing real solutions in the face of climate change. And as the weather grows more deadly and destructive, they aren’t waiting on Washington to act.”
Our Environmental Ministries Team hosts this opportunity to view and discuss this National Geographic documentary film as part of a series this fall on the ministry of creation care in our current climate emergency. A light lunch will be served
