Pastor’s Corner – September 2, 2018

Join us by brining your animal, a picture, or their name so we can offering a blessing to the living creatures that grace our lives.
In May 2001 journalist Giles Brandeth interviewed South African Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu. It was a powerful experience for Brandeth, for Desmond Tutu was suffering from prostate cancer and there was a real chance this might be the last interview he would ever give. What might Tutu want to talk about? Perhaps the amazing transformation in the politics of his country, and of which he himself had a leading role. No. Here’s what he told Brandeth: “If this is going to be my last interview, I am glad we are not going to talk about politics. Let us talk about prayer and adoration, about faith, hope and forgiveness.” For Tutu these are the things that are the stuff of life.

This fall we will be diving deeply into prayer and understanding the ways we are called to come to God as Christian people.  As your pastor I am excited about these times when we will get explore how to live our faith together.  Last Sunday, 16 people gathered to help plan and vision worship for this fall. In September we will be studying prayer together and how to stay connected in following our God.  In October, we will be exploring how to let God help us defy the gravity of this world with gratitude as we explore practices of generosity, and in November, we will delve deeply into Grace, exploring the depths to which God calls imperfect people to God’s loving work in the world.  

We hope you will join us next week as we kickoff this fall on September 9, with one service at 10:15am.  Our choir will return, directed by Dave Merkel and then join us after worship for a meal.

Welcome home people of Shiloh,
Pastor Tyler
