YOU’RE INVITED to Join the Fun!
Saturday, October 30th at Piper Park, Larkspur
Let’s RECONNECT! We’re kicking off the stewardship season with an informal lunch time picnic at Piper Park in Larkspur. BYOP (bring your own picnic) and something to share. The Stewardship team will provide the drinks and will get the BBQ going for anyone wishing to BBQ. Since it is the day before Halloween, we encourage kids (and adults) to come in their costumes. We’ll have board games, badminton, and a good old picnic game or two.
On the site there are tennis courts, a volleyball court, and the perimeter walking path. Cornhole anyone? It’s also a great place to ride bikes. Dogs are welcome on leash and there is a dog play area.
Adult Education - Sundays @ 10:45am
THE DIFFICULT WORDS of JESUS
Sundays, Sept 12 & 19, Oct 10, 17 & 24, Nov 14 at 10:45am in person or via ZOOM (ID: 4159243782)
We begin this fall with a Bible Study of some of Jesus’ most challenging teachings. Using a book by Amy-Jill Levine, The Difficult Words of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to His Most Perplexing Teachings, (you can find the book at your local Book Store or on Amazon—although it’s not necessary to have a copy to get something out of the class), plus a 10– 12-minute video by Professor Levine for each session, we will explore the difficult passages. Amy-Jill Levine will show how these teachings would have sounded to the people who first heard them, how have they been understood over time, and how we might interpret them in the context of the Gospel of love and reconciliation.
Amy-Jill Levine is the University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies and the Mary Jane Werthan Professor of Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School and College of Arts and Sciences. An internationally renowned scholar and teacher, she is the author of numerous books including Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week and Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi.
These classes will be held in person in the Parish Hall, and on Zoom from 10:45 to 11:30 am.

Meal Bags for the Hungry
Pick them up in the church narthex
Please help yourself to the meal bags prepared by the SOCIAL ACTION team and placed in the narthex. They are for dispensing to anyone you come across who is hungry or in need. (FYI), if you keep them in the car, be sure to store in the front seat for easy access and avoid frantic searches while driving. Many thanks for helping to distribute these.
