St. Andrew’s Online

June 21, 2017

Greetings!

We celebrated Father’s Day this past Sunday.  It was amazing to see all the items that members brought in that reminded them of their fathers.  The stories about dads ranged widely and depicted lives touched in so many ways.  The one story from the Bible that particularly reveals God’s nature toward us as a parent is found in the parable of the prodigal son.  In the story, what is revealed is a thankless, caustic son who squanders his inheritance, turning away from both his parents and his religious heritage. Eventually, finding himself in a desperate situation, he comes to his senses and decides that his dad was not so bad. Perhaps his father would hire him on and treat him as one of the other laborers.  Instead, his dad welcomes him back open armed, joyous to see him again.  From the father’s perspective the son had died – and was again alive!  This portrayal represents God’s longing for us to be in relationship with Himself.  Admittedly, there have been occasions in my life when it did not feel that way.  Yet this is the awakening that I believe God desires us to know in this life.  May you come to know the magnitude of God’s love for you!

Blessings, Pastor Dan

 Quilters –At our May 23 meeting we met to put together foundation pieced blocks.  (Come join us to find out what these are!!)  Thanks to Christy Townsend for the pattern and those who created the blocks to make the quilts.  When you read this, the quilt tops will be at Sue Chase's house for quilting.  I think you will be amazed at the completed projects.  They will be displayed soon in the Fellowship Hall.

We're discussing the June meeting with an option being a potluck picnic. Date, time and place will be in the Sunday Bulletin.  Please join us if you quilt, like quilts, like people who quilt or want to find out more of what we do here at St. Andrew's.  We do have fun and can find a job for anyone.  Many "jobs" don't involve a sewing machine just a desire to create a comfort quilt for others to use.  Happy Quilting, Barb Ullmann 360-491-2693
