RECAP OF COFFEE WITH THE PASTOR – Wednesday, February 23, 2022
RECAP OF COFFEE WITH THE PASTOR Wednesday, February 23, 2022
February only has a few more days left. March, which has come in like a lion, brings some changes to us. It begins with the season of Lent on March 2nd. There will be a Lenten study from Pastor Dave and his son that will be available to you remotely (details to follow). Café Joy returns on Sunday, March 6th with coffee and goodies before and after worship. This will also be communion Sunday and if you watch us remotely, we invite you at home to get a glass of juice and bread to join us.
The 2nd Sunday of March, on the 13th, we will begin an important Forum at 9:00 AM in the Lounge. Please bring your coffee and refreshments with you if you like. We will have a short presentation on the issues facing the UMC today and then have an open discussion on how the UMC will decide about allowing homosexual clergy to hold position within the church and allowing same sex marriages to be conducted in the church. Our discussion is not for the purpose of debate or arguments but strictly a forum in a safe environment to listen to each other’s opinions and perspectives. These topics are timely because the UMC General Conference is hoping to reschedule a conference at some point to vote on how the UMC will proceed in settling the issue and rather a split in the church is eminent. Pastor Dave’s goal is to have these conversations now so that when the time comes that a decision is made. we can decide together how we are going to move forward within our own church. We must have the ability to view both sides of the argument. Pastor Dave discusses this in great detail in today’s broadcast. You are encouraged to listen to this on Facebook on the Sturgeon Bay United Methodist Church Page.
Pastor Dave is hoping that March goes out like a lamb….Until next time, Pastor Dave wishes you a blessed day and a great cup of coffee.
