Dear Faith Des Peres Community,

This week I’ll conclude my sermon series on Faith and Politics. Thank you for your kind and encouraging words about the series and for being a congregation willing to talk about faith and politics. Not all congregations are willing to talk about faith and politics (nor all preachers), but I think it’s an important conversation to have. John Calvin believed wholeheartedly that because Christ ushered in God’s kingdom here on earth, we are called to live in the political world, which means that sometimes we support it, sometimes we challenge it, sometimes we critique it, and sometimes we resist it – all in the name of Christ. We may not always agree on how to do that, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it.

This Sunday we have two fun things happening in worship: we’re accepting new members and kids are invited to wear their Halloween costumes. I hope you’ll be here! We all could use some fun these days!

Last, don’t forget the bonfire Friday night at 7 pm. Arrive when you can and bring a munchie to share. Bring a chair, too!




PS: Please note that the Faith and Politics class on October 30 and November 6 at 9:30 has been cancelled.
