Risky Business (Sunday, 13 November 2011)

Have you been watching the “Occupy Wall Street” protests and the other “Occupy” protests spring up around the country? As I do, I often wonder where God is in the mix…and what Scripture has to say about it. Well, this week we are in luck–the Scripture passage (Matthew 25:14-30) seems to speak to the same issues as the 99% and the 1%. But it turns it upside down. Curious? Wondering what Jesus has to say about this? Great! Come on out and join us for worship as we figure out what it means to engage in “Risky Business” for Christ and God’s Kingdom! You are welcome.

This week, we will be celebrating some new members and a baptism at Mt. Tabor that got put on hold a few weeks ago because of our surprise October snow storm. Let’s welcome these folks into our faith community officially! Also, make note that NEXT WEEK, worship at Mt. Tabor will begin at 10:50 (for November 20th ONLY). Please plan to arrive accordingly. (And if you forget…no big deal…you’ll miss announcements, the prelude, and opening hymn…but still make it for the rest of the service). Be sure to check out the rest of the announcements. God bless.

Announcements:

Today is the DEADLINE for donations of cake mix and icing for the Board of Childcare Thanksgiving Drive in the box. Location: Mt.Tabor.

Worship Fun Fact! “Because in the reading of the four Gospels we are addressed by the words of Christ and experience this as an encounter with the living Christ, many Christians prefer to stand and greet Christ with an ‘Alleluia!’ except during Lent, and remain standing for the reading of the Gospel as an act of respect for the Christ who is addressing us.” (UMBOW 23).
