Harvest Sunday Update

Our first Harvest Sunday collection of the year, originally on the calendar for this coming Sunday, will be rescheduled for a Sunday in March (date TBD). The Parish Council is seeking suggestions for a recipient of this collection; contact Frank Cerra (cerra001@umn.edu) if you have a recommendation. (More information on our Harvest Sundays and their intent here.)

Sunday of Meatfare of the Last Judgment

Today’s Gospel reading is Matthew 25:31-46, the parable of the Last Judgment. It reminds us that while trusting in Christ’s love and mercy, we must not forget His righteous judgment when He comes again in glory. If our hearts remain hardened and unrepentant, we should not expect the Lord to overlook our transgressions simply because He is a good and loving God. Although He does not desire the death of a sinner, He also expects us to turn from our wickedness and live (Ezek. 33:11). This same idea is expressed in the prayer read by the priest after the penitent has confessed his or her sins (Slavic practice).

Food Shelf Reminder

The food shelf cupboard has become quite bare almost overnight! If you are out and about this week, consider purchasing some food to bring to share with our neighbors who visit the food shelf this weekend. We need everything that is listed in the guidelines, so please review them first. Thank you!

Church School

Sunday class: February 23

Adult Education

February 23: Ellie Peters - Interactions with the Tangible World - This Sunday will be spent exploring the question of how we as Christians ought to interact with the tangible created world. The majority of the hour will be spent unpacking passages from Augustine’s Confessions on time, memory, and creation. Insights from this will be brought into dialogue with passages from Genesis, Ecclesiastes, and contemporary Christian writings.

The adult ed book hour is scheduled for the third Sunday of every month, through June. Next session: March 15 (9-10 am in AMH). Reading focus: How to be a Sinner (Peter Bouteneff), chapter 4 (Reflections on the Self; pp 65-93). (Questions about the book hour can be directed to Jason Schock)
