Last week’s readings were LONG.  Next week’s readings will be LONG.  This week’s readings aren’t terribly long, but they tie together with, once again, an incredibly relevant message for our time.  Of course, as I keep reminding you, we need to understand “there and then” before we can apply it to “here and now.”  We’ll do just that this Saturday evening at 5:30 pm in Bethany Lutheran Church as we continue our study of the book of Acts.  See you then and there – and maybe invite a friend along.

Our readings for this week will be:

Numbers 27:12-27

Psalm 146

Acts 6:1-7

Matthew 25:31-46

If you are going to join us in-person at Bethany, just a few notes:

  • Please sit one family unit per pew – there will likely be enough pews even if we use every other one
  • Please use ONLY the south entrance (the red door) – there will be hand sanitizer at the door for EVERYONE upon entering
  • Masks are optional – we should easily be able to maintain at least six feet of separation, but if you want to wear a mask also, feel free to wear a mask
  • There will be other logistics announcements before we start, but those are the main things to know before you arrive

We will continue providing Zoom broadcasts of our services on Saturday nights as well.  I have some things that I’ll be improving (hopefully) with the technology to make things better for you Zoomsters.  Keep in mind, just because we are meeting in person does NOT mean that you MUST join us in person.  If you would like to join us and feel safe doing so, we would LOVE to have you.

If you’re still not sure, stay home and join us via Zoom. https://zoom.us/j/5153822077 (or launch the Zoom app and “Join” meeting 515 382 2077).  As in the past, you will need to put in a password AFTER you have entered the meeting ID: 3548999

While we are very grateful to Bethany for their hospitality, we intend to go back to the Middle School for Sunday morning worship as soon as the school district allows outsiders to use the facilities.  At this time, we have no idea when that will be.  I have written to ask the Ballard School District Superintendent but haven’t heard back.

Prayers of thanksgiving for Roger and Judie’s granddaughter, Erika, following successful surgery.  She was discharged from the hospital today.  Please continue the prayers for her healing.

Judie also reports that their newest great-grandson was born yesterday – two months prematurely.  Mother, Whitnie, and child, Jack, could use your prayers as he came into the world via an emergency C-section.

Also, we pray for Sue Jones’s cousin’s daughter, Carrie.
