Wednesday, Danielle and I rocked some girl power hauling couches, rearranging chairs, and moving the piano to just the right spot. We were excited to give the parlor a makeover in anticipation of launching our Gospel on the Radio worship service this Sunday. Please join us starting at 10 AM for snacks, a new puzzle, music, and fellowship in “The Way Back Lounge” (aka – the back of the parlor), and then stick around for worship.
We kick off our summer series using the music of Louis Armstrong for inspiration. In the song, “What a Wonderful World”, Armstrong catalogues the beauties of God’s good earth: The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky | Are also on the faces of people going by I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do | They’re really saying I love you.
Our scripture reading also offers a rainbow in the sky – God’s promise to Noah never again to destroy the earth by flood. Join us as our ancient promise from God and the music of a jazz legend converge. What can we learn about God and ourselves from God’s faithfulness painted in living color across the sky?
- Scripture: Genesis 9:8-17
- Sermon: “The Promises of Roy G. Biv”
Thanks so much to Susan Rutherford, who is graciously sharing her musical gifts. She is the first of many congregation members, bringing the songs of some of our favorite musical artists to life this summer.
I feel so grateful to serve and worship with you each week. As Louis Armstrong sang: If I never have a cent, babe, I’d be rich as Rock-e-fellow. With gold dust at my feet, On the sunny side of the street. (song: “On the Sunny Side of the Street”)
See you in the Parlor,
