Thanksgiving

October 12, 2014

Another Thanksgiving and it's time once again to thank Shirley E. for another lovely display of harvest fruit and vegetables.

Scott helped us all to remember that this holiday is about more than just over-eating with his thoughtful take on Jesus' parable of the Ten Lepers found in Luke 17: 11-19.

You can listen to his sermon by following the link below. (Right click on it and choose "Open in new tab.")
The Ten Lepers



While listening, you can contemplate the American artist Bill Hoover's evocative interpretation of this old story.
Other of Mr Hoover's work can be viewed on his website by clicking on his painting.




Connie and the Choir followed with Joseph M. Martin's lovely anthem:
A Thanksgiving Garden

The service finished with Connie's contemplative performance of the familiar hymn For the Beauty of the Earth arranged by Lee Dengler.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
