person, anniversary or birthday or just “because”, let me know.

You pick the week and tell me the kind or color of flowers you prefer.

You may take them home, or if you are attending by Zoom and live nearby we can deliver them to you after the service.

A message from Reverend Joe….

 Dear Members and Friends,

According to a web site called Spruce.com there are 31 reasons to celebrate in October, most of which involve food!  If you’re interested and perhaps want a chuckle here’s the link:  https://www.thespruce.com/october-holidays-4311695

The most obvious is Halloween, of course, but the other 30 don’t seem to include the reasons we celebrate here at Tabernacle.  I celebrate Halloween Parking which happens every Friday, Saturday, Sunday in our two parking lots.  This low energy, short term volunteer experience is the biggest shot in the arm to our financial picture as a congregation.  If you haven’t already done your stint as a parker, please sign up this Sunday or email Sarah Davin.  It’s so simple, stand on the curb with a sign, collect $30 from out of staters looking for a place to park and voila, you have made a gift of your time to your favorite charity and welcomed the stranger!  I know of no other church whose biggest fund raiser is so simple and easy.  We don’t have to put on community meals, shows, staff booths at fairs or other labor intensive activities so please volunteer and help!

October is also LGBT History Month and you can go to this web site and read or watch a video about a different LGBT icon every day of the month:  https://www.lgbthistorymonth.com/  October 11 is both National Coming Out Day and Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

All of our October Sundays are jammed backed with praise and joy.  Here’s the schedule for the rest of the month so you can plan accordingly:

October 10: We have a baptism to celebrate!

October 17:  The Zilber Beatles return with music of Steppenwolf, Jim Croce, The Eagles, John Denver, and Roger Miller.

October 24:  Our intern, Carissa, preaches

October 31:  NO IN PERSON WORSHIP, ZOOM ONLY.  Quite frankly the way the city closes the streets I don’t know how any of us could get here!  Thankful we are now so experienced at doing virtual worship!

 

See you in church or on zoom!

SCRIPTURE READINGS FOR BIBLE  STUDY 10-6-2021

AND SUNDAY, 10-10-2021

 

Old Testament Reading
Job 23:1-9, 16-17

23:1 Then Job answered:

23:2 “Today also my complaint is bitter; his hand is heavy despite my groaning.

23:3 Oh, that I knew where I might find him, that I might come even to his dwelling!

23:4 I would lay my case before him, and fill my mouth with arguments.

23:5 I would learn what he would answer me, and understand what he would say to me.

23:6 Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power? No; but he would give heed to me.

23:7 There an upright person could reason with him, and I should be acquitted forever by my judge.

23:8 “If I go forward, he is not there; or backward, I cannot perceive him;

23:9 on the left he hides, and I cannot behold him; I turn to the right, but I cannot see him.

23:16 God has made my heart faint; the Almighty has terrified me;

23:17 If only I could vanish in darkness, and thick darkness would cover my face!

 

New Testament Reading

Hebrews 4:12-16

4:12 Indeed, the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

4:13 And before him no creature is hidden, but all are naked and laid bare to the eyes of the one to whom we must render an account.

4:14 Since, then, we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast to our confession.

4:15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin.

4:16 Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

 

 

SCRIPTURE READINGS FOR BIBLE  STUDY 10-13-2021

AND SUNDAY, 10-17-2021

Job 38:1-7, (34-41)
38:1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind:

38:2 “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?

38:3 Gird up your loins like a man, I will question you, and you shall declare to me.

38:4 “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding.

38:5 Who determined its measurements–surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it?

38:6 On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone

38:7 when the morning stars sang together and all the heavenly beings shouted for joy?

38:34 “Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, so that a flood of waters may cover you?

38:35 Can you send forth lightnings, so that they may go and say to you, ‘Here we are’?

38:36 Who has put wisdom in the inward parts, or given understanding to the mind?

38:37 Who has the wisdom to number the clouds? Or who can tilt the waterskins of the heavens,

38:38 when the dust runs into a mass and the clods cling together?

38:39 “Can you hunt the prey for the lion, or satisfy the appetite of the young lions,

38:40 when they crouch in their dens, or lie in wait in their covert?

38:41 Who provides for the raven its prey, when its young ones cry to God, and wander about for lack of food?

 

Hebrews 5:1-10
5:1 Every high priest chosen from among mortals is put in charge of things pertaining to God on their behalf, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.

5:2 He is able to deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is subject to weakness;

5:3 and because of this he must offer sacrifice for his own sins as well as for those of the people.

5:4 And one does not presume to take this honor, but takes it only when called by God, just as Aaron was.

5:5 So also Christ did not glorify himself in becoming a high priest, but was appointed by the one who said to him, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”;

5:6 as he says also in another place, “You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.”

5:7 In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to the one who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.

5:8 Although he was a Son, he learned obedience through what he suffered;

5:9 and having been made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him,

5:10 having been designated by God a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.
