Pastor's Weekly Update

Dear Friends,

    This week has been one of highs and lows.  A week where we see God doing some wonderful things in our community and then we see humanity at its worst.  The shooting at the Tree of Life in Pittsburgh breaks the heart of God.  A big thank you to Vice Mayor, Ben Sorenson for organizing an interfaith prayer vigil at the Sanctuary church.  It was so inspirational praying alongside people of all faiths!  I hope we all can pray about how we can make a difference in a world where division and hatred has roots.  We need to be a people of GRACE - We need to be JESUS with skin on! I sure want too - how about you?  
     This past Sunday afternoon we had our annual Trunk or Treat.  It was a Spooktacular time!!  We had 30 trunks decorated with many volunteers helping make it run smoothly.  Thank you to Sabrina Edler and Lauren Carroll for chairing this great event.  Another thank you goes to Marie, for her energy and love.  She is an amazing pastor to our children and to the church as well.  This event drew so many families from the neighborhood and community!  WELL DONE everyone.  I hope you have a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing you this Sunday in worship. God bless!
