Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost

October 1, 2023

Dear People of Saint John’s,

In this Sunday’s gospel passage, Jesus is asked, by what authority are you doing these things? It is my privilege to preach. A wise mentor once told me, the answer to bad authority is not no authority, but good authority. The passage begs the question, how do we perceive and respond to good authority in our lives?

Guest organist Susan Sady will be playing, as Ted Phillips is out on medical leave for a few weeks. Please keep him in your prayers. Coffee hour will follow in the Thompson Room, through the generous provision of the Thorburn family. Come!

Please mark your calendars for the first event from our newly convened fellowship committee! This will be an Italian dinner, on Saturday evening, October 28th, 6 to 7:30 pm. Invite some friends into the life of Saint John’s, and enjoy the company of fellow parishioners. There will be a free-will offering to benefit the food pantry. Please sign up on the sign-up sheet in the hallway so we can ensure that we have enough, and come!

For those of you who will be worshiping with us via live stream, be sure to let us know that you are there through the chat feature, so that we can greet you before the Offertory at the service. The services and bulletins will be found below.  Come join in worship!

What to Look For (to Send a Chat)

Once you are viewing the live stream by pressing the link above, there should be a "conversation" to the right of the stream (Top Chat). Like this:

Messages populate from the bottom of the box. You add your message by typing on the "Say something..." line and pressing Enter (or clicking/tapping on the right-pointed arrow under your message). Other messages that come in after yours will file in underneath yours in the running chat above the entry line.

If you're watching the live stream in full screen mode, you'll need to find the chat box. This might be found using the arrow at the bottom center of the screen under the red line. You'll have to click or tap on the screen to see this option, similar to when you want to pause or change the volume, etc.

See that little white down arrow/carat under the red line and Scroll for details? If you tap on that, the screen pulls up, and you see the chat box. You may need to scroll up further to see the "Say something" line.

 Sunday Liturgy will be available on YouTube after the conclusion of the 10 am service.
