The unofficial end to summer this past weekend brought us extreme heat, which prevented us from meeting in our garden space this past Sunday. The extreme heat has persisted which closed our Garden on Tuesday and will do so again tomorrow. During these times of extreme heat, it is important to take care of ourselves and one another. Cooling centers are available. Even a few hours in cool temperatures can help preserve our health. You can find some through out south bay here, or at the 211 County website. As we live into this new warmer reality we are grateful to all who continue to support our church and garden growing.
This Sunday we begin a new sermon series. Our new sermon series is called "Perspectives." Like the series last fall we will spend the next 5 weeks hearing from 5 different theological perspectives. They include: the indigenous perspective, ecological perspective, asian feminist perspective, Womanist (i.e. black feminist) perspective, and disability perspective. This series will give us an opportunity to once again experience the Gospel with fresh eyes as we listen and learn from those who locate themselves within and experience God and scripture from these perspectives.
This Sunday we are blessed to be joined by Toni Nilsen from 1st Presbyterian in San Pedro. Toni is Navajo and will share with us a Navajo prayer. All are welcome for our Sunday rhythm. Come as you are, stay as you are able.
