We are coming up on the last of our Global Missions Sundays. All are invited to a free lunch after worship for any who wish to stay, prepared by PJGM team member Ranae Gilly. It will be set up at the far end of Fellowship Hall. A brief presentation will be offered to give you an idea of what is happening with our global mission partners.

These Sundays have been a great build up to World Communion Sunday on October 7th, when we and Christians in many other nations around the world will along be feasting at Christ’s table. Steve and I have picked wonderful world music, and, as in prior years, the country of origin will be listed in the bulletin for each piece.

We have a tradition here at BPC of inviting worshipers to wear clothing from around the service that Sunday. If you have exotic garb from your own travels, or a snappy scarf you can drape over your shoulders, feel free to wear it to worship and be prepared to share where it came from. Ironically, much of our everyday clothing is made in Vietnam or Bangladesh; we wear world garb every day. But World Communion Sunday is a good day to dress in the colors and traditions of our global neighbors. So dig into the chest of closet, sew up that seam, and join in celebrating the wondrous diversity of God’s people.

 

Peace, Catherine
