Sunday, August 20

It’s a terrifying chant, and it comes to us not from Nuremberg in 1937 but Charlottesville in 2017: “the Jews will not replace us.” How can we respond as Christians? The Apostle Paul in our second reading this week offers a stunning clue. Join us at 10 AM on Sunday to find out what it is.

Scripture Readings for this day:
Isaiah 56:1,6-8
Romans 11:1-2a, 29-32
Matthew 15:[10-20] 21-28

We welcome David Lepse as our guest organist this Sunday.

Childcare is available from 9:30-11:30 AM.
