Happy Halloween!... in church? Seriously, people dressed up in costumes and everything! Even the preacher, wearing a "Grim Reaper" costume to preach a sermon on Halloween, the most un-Christian of holidays. Our fundamentalist Mennonite ancestors must have been rolling over in their graves (or perhaps just lying really still so as to discourage any and all grave-related activity…)

But really--what's the good of Halloween? Can God really be present somewhere amidst the graveyards and ghouls? Join us to find out!

This Sunday our worship service is a celebration of our church's work through and with the Mennonite Central Committee! As you may recall (through the timey-wimey fog of the pandemic year that was), 2020 marked 100 years of MCC, and we celebrated that long and deep and wide history in one of our Zoom services last fall. As part of the centennial festivities, we also raised over $10,000 for MCC's "New Roots" campaign, and this summer a tree was planted in front of the church building as a living tribute and inspiration for the ongoing work of "Relief, Development and Peace in the name of Christ."

All of that was and is excellent, but with our return to in-person worship (in small doses) this fall, we thought it would be appropriate to revisit the MCC Centennial, with a particular focus on the many, many connections between MCC and our congregation specifically. In this service, we heard from multiple MCC volunteers and staff, a braved the wind and rain for a quick trip outside to surround and dedicate our new "MCC Centennial Tree."

An influential Jewish teacher, a Samaritan woman, an ancient well, a failing water filter, the Garden of Eden. What do they have in common and who is willing to dance? Strange questions that the book of John might possibly have some answers to as we continue looking at a path of deeper wisdom. Put on your dancing shoes and follow along as Jesus continues to unsettle age old traditions.
