Keeping The Sabbath

Stories
Lectionary Tales For The Pulpit
Series II Cycle B
Take a day to nourish your soul. Keeping the Sabbath isn't about rules and restrictions. It's about setting aside a day each week for the soulful activities that our high-pressure careers and weekday responsibilities squeeze out.*

Connie's mother wouldn't hear of it. "We don't shop on Sunday. We don't wash our hair, we don't work, we don't buy. You've heard this your whole life, Connie. Why would you think anything is different?"

Bethany Peerbolte
What’s in a name? A lot. Parents spend months thinking and arguing about what to name their children. Before we can speak, we learn that there is a specific sound that means us. We later learn that sound is “Sam” or some other name. Our name is the first thing that is ours unequivocally. Some of us hold onto that with a firm grip, for example I am Bethany and never Beth. Others love to play around with nicknames. I have a friend who changed her name every four years or so. You can tell at what life stage someone met her based on what name they call her.

The Village Shepherd

Janice B. Scott
Call to Worship:
Just before the first Christmas, an angel appeared to Joseph to tell him that Jesus would also be called "Emmanuel", meaning "God With Us." Let us listen to the guidance of the angels today as we prepare to receive God With Us once again.

Invitation to Confession:
Jesus, fill me with the awe of Christmas.
Lord, have mercy.
Jesus, fill me with the mystery of Christmas.
Christ, have mercy.
Jesus, fill me with Emmanuel -- God with us.
Lord, have mercy.
