Dear Faith Des Peres Family,

This Sunday I’ll continue my sermon series on Moses. We’ll hear the story of the burning bush which was a definitive moment in Moses’ life. He was reluctant to do what God told him to do and came up with every excuse in the book as to why he wasn’t qualified to lead the Hebrew people out of Egypt. Have you ever been asked to take on a task you were reluctant to do? It’s a silly question, because who among hasn’t been asked to do something we were reluctant to do? The better question is, how did you respond to your reluctance? Moses could have ignored God and continued to herd sheep. But he didn’t; he worked through his reluctance and sense of inadequacy and followed God’s call. Moses’ story encourages us to reflect on those types of moments in our lives and to remember that in them, God is present. I hope you’ll join us Sunday.


On another note, I’m pleased to let you know that we have hired a new Director of Music and Organist. Amy Mazzeo officially joins us September 1. You can read her bio below, but I’m very excited to welcome Amy and begin working with her. Please make a point of introducing yourself and welcoming her on September 10, her first with us.


See you Sunday!
