There is much pain and hurt in our world, both personal and communal. October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the anniversary of the #MeToo movement. Join us for a brief service of healing as we hold space for whatever healing folks may need, personal, communal, or both. We will sing, light candles, pray together, and be together with God. See Rev. Mollie with any questions.

Our October gathering of Brewatitudes, a monthly gathering to discuss theological topics in a casual atmosphere, will again be at Landlocked Brewery on October 13 from 3:00-4:30 pm. Each month we will engage in a new topic at the intersection of theology & living, faith & culture. October’s topic will be theodicy, or the justice of God. We’ll have the conversation around questions like – Where is God in suffering? Why do bad things happen to good people? And more. Food available, beer is optional, openness to good conversation a must. The discussion will be facilitated by Rev. Mollie, contact her with any questions!

Our scripture this week comes from the prophet Isaiah. Isaiah, as a mouthpiece of God, demands justice of God’s people. He reminds the people that old categories which have brought about separation are no longer necessary. He says that God’s house shall be a house of prayer for all people. No exceptions. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt reflects on his trip to the US-Mexico border and what we can do to help God’s people struggling on both sides of the border.
Mark your calendars to attend the LUCC annual Blessing of the Animals service on Saturday, October 5 beginning at 10:00 am.
