This Week at Tabernacle

THIS WEEK AT TABERNACLE CHURCH

June 26th and July 3rd, 2022

This is a two week “This Week”

 

NEWS FLASH!
COME MARCH WITH OTHER PEOPLE OF FAITH SATURDAY

JUNE 25th

Because several churches asked to march together in Saturday’s Pride Parade, the UU Church of Greater Lynn graciously offered to have those faith groups involved in the Interfaith Service (here at Tabernacle Thursday night at 7 pm) march under their “banner”.  Per North Shore Pride’s rules, individual banners are not allowed (unless they pay their own fee to march) so we decided to make a new banner:

PEOPLE OF FAITH MARCHING FOR PRIDE!

So come on down to Shetland Park on Congress St at 11 am Saturday morning and look for “People of Faith”.  If you ask one of the marshals or people at the registration desk ask where the UU Church of Greater Lynn are forming.  Wear you TEAM TABERNACLE T-shirt or any other Tabernacle or UCC identification and enjoy marching for Pride!

 

Come celebrate our new Pride doors…

Sunday, June 26th

The Zilber Beatles will be performing!!!

See you in person or via Zoom…

 

A message from Reverend Joe

Dear Members and Friends,

As I wrote last week, I will be off to Wisconsin this weekend to visit my children and grandchildren before my time at the National Rural Institute Sunday through Thursday and then off to Alaska.  Our Pastor Emeritus will preach the next two Sundays and Carissa on July 10.

This Sunday is Open and Affirming Sunday in the UCC.  Rev Elizabeth writes:  During worship on Sunday June 26th, we will be celebrating the rainbow doors that have stood on the front steps of the church for half the year since 2016. During the service Rev. Elizabeth King will invite members to share what the doors mean to them, their families and the community as well as their role in constructing, designing, painting and fastening them to the steps of the church. The sharing of these stories will serve as the sermon for the day. The Zilber Beatles will be playing throughout the service as well. We hope you will join us for an energizing service this Sunday!

From June 24th through July 16th, if you have a pastoral emergency, please contact Rev. Elizabeth at 781-608-9621.  Her email is revekingucc@gmail.com

For non-pastoral emergencies contact the Deacons of the Month:  June is Michele Parr (978-394-8237), July is Jack Kiernan (978-335-5408).  Chair of the Deacons is Brenda Lewis:  978-538-6436.

I wish you all a very safe and happy Pride!

I expect to come back from my conference and vacation refreshed and full of the glory of God’s creation.

Blessings,

Rev Joe

READINGS FOR BIBLE STUDY AND SUNDAY’S SERVICE

 

Genesis 9.8-16

8 Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him,

9‘As for me, I am establishing my covenant with you and your descendants after you,

10 and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the domestic animals, and every animal of the earth with you, as many as came out of the ark.*

11 I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of a flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.’

12 God said, ‘This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations:

13 I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.

14 When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds,

15 I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.

16  When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.’

 

Matthew 7:1-8

1 ‘Do not judge, so that you may not be judged.

2 For with the judgement you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get.

3 Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye?

4 Or how can you say to your neighbor, “Let me take the speck out of your eye”, while the log is in your own eye?

5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor’s eye.

6 ‘Do not give what is holy to dogs; and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under foot and turn and maul you.

7 ‘Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. 8For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.
