Scout Sunday!

This Sunday, February 23, we’ll celebrate Scout Sunday with leadership from Glenham Scout Troop 41.  In addition to hearing from David Paschal, a member of FPC who has almost attained the Eagle Scout rank, we’ll hear from special guests: Torah scribe Julie Seltzer, and Imam Abdullah from the Beacon Islamic Teaching Center.  They will be offering their particular “view from the mountain” to wrap up our February sermon series.  Because…

Lent begins next week.  And, it all starts with Ash Wednesday on February 26.  We’ll gather for a potluck supper at 6:15 and then head into the sanctuary for a simple time of worship and imposition of ashes where we are tangibly reminded that we come from dust… and to dust we shall return. You can find out more details here.

Finally, I had the opportunity to be interviewed in a local podcast focusing on the lives of various Beacon residents.  It turned out to be a really wonderful experience, and I found myself talking a lot about our ministry here at FPC.  If you haven’t heard it yet, you can catch the interview here.

Faithfully,
Ben
