October 22, 2021 | Twenty-Second Sunday After Pentecost

Can we pray the way Bartimaeus prays? People try to hush him up because by addressing Jesus as "Son of David" he is making a politically dangerous claim that Jesus is the rightful king. Could our prayers ever be heard as a threat to unjust powers that be? Bartimaeus won't give up or go away quietly, but repeats his call for help more loudly. Do we ask so boldly? And are our prayers an honest answer to Jesus' question, "What do you want me to do for you?"

With the spread of the Delta Variant of the virus and the increased positivity rate in Dauphin County, we are asking that folks mask again in the church. Our first concern is people's safety when you enter the church. Other churches in our Synod have gone back to masking so that the children and those unvaccinated can come to worship masked and be safer. The Task Force met to monitor the spread of the virus and make recommendations to council. Unfortunately, we are asking you all to put on your masks again for the safety of everyone including our children when they come to worship.

Pastor Kerns will be leading worship this Sunday after his quarantine from Covid has now come to an end. He and Cheryl are doing fine and feeling much better.

You will find the scripture readings and the message for this week in the links below. I offer you the peace of Christ and pray that you are all safe. Keep yourselves in prayer and scripture to keep yourselves strong and able to overcome any concerns that you are facing.
