This weeks readings and question of the week:
Take time to mediate on God’s word and prepare for worship this Sunday.  And as you meditate on them, consider the Question of the Week:

The disciples returned to Jerusalem with great joy to be witnesses.  How can I remain a faithful and diligent disciple until the end?

Acts 1: 1-11
Psalm 47
Ephesians 1:17-23
Luke 24:44-53
Psalm 47:7-8
7 For God is King of all the earth; *
sing praises with all your skill.
8 God reigns over the nations; *
God sits upon his holy throne.
Especially during this most interesting time of election season – it gives me some peace knowing that God is King and reigns over all nations – even this one, no matter who is in “power”.
      Clarke’s Commentary on Psalms 47:7
For God is the King of all the earth – He is not your King only, but the King of the universe. He has no limited power, no confined dominion.

Sing ye praises with understanding – זמרו משכיל zammeru maskil, sing an instructive song. Let sense and sound go together. Let your hearts and heads go with your voices. Understand what you sing; and feel what you understand; and let the song be what will give instruction in righteousness to them that hear it. Sing wisely – Anglo-Saxon. Multitudes sing foolishly.

Ecumenical Catholic Communion Synod – Parish Representatives sought

Every other year, the ECC holds a Synod, a type of National meeting.   We can send up to 4 delegates (two for House of Pastors, two for House of Laity).

The 2016 Holy Synod will be at the American Airlines Training and Conference Center in Fort Worth Texas, October 10-13.  If you are interested in attending please see any member of the Board of Directors for more details.   We need to finalize who is attending soon – as there is some work and research expected of each delegate before the Synod begins to help with the passing of legislation.

We are all busy – but we hope you will take time to enjoy the company of your brothers and sisters at All Souls.  Our pot lucks and fall picnic are also a great time to invite friends and family to.
