June 2017

Dear Friends,
There is a big celebration happening this year in the life of the Church. On October 31, 2017, the Protestant Reformation will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. On October 31, 1517, the priest and scholar Martin Luther approaches the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, and nails a piece of paper to it containing the 95 revolutionary opinions that would begin the Protestant Reformation.

One way that I want to honor this anniversary is with my preaching. I want to begin by looking at our own denomination's seal. The seal of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is a symbolic statement of the church's heritage, identity, and mission in contemporary form. Its power depends on both its simplicity and complexity, as well as its traditional and enduring qualities.
 
The parts of the seal that we will be learning about are the cross, the triangle, the book, the pulpit, the cup, the dove, the fish, and the fire. Each week we will look at the symbolism as it relates to scripture and to our tradition as Presbyterians.

I look forward to seeing you in church!

Grace & peace,
Pastor Polly
