The Bible ~ 1 Thessalonians 2: 13; 2 Timothy 3: 16-17

July 1, 2018 Peg Weissbrod

The sermon begins at the 23 minute mark.

One evening last week Lisa Vahey told this story at the meeting of those who volunteer their time to be with Leonor, Adan and Louis Mario as they live with us in Sanctuary. She shared with us that often she takes Adan (who is four) to the Stone Oven on Lee for a cookie.

The last six weeks have been a revelation to me.

Six weeks ago, on Tuesday, Sept. 5 we welcomed Lenor Garcia into our church family. A stranger, an alien, and immigrant – we didn’t know her and she didn’t know us.
