Dr. Seuss Eucharist - Side Show - Potluck - Annual General Meeting

     We had a great service on Sunday morning past, Feb. 2nd at St. Luke's Hall.  Rev. Andrew used a new liturgy that some call "Seusscharist" - a Eucharist of simpler language and rhyme geared towards children in a Dr. Seuss theme and time.   Adults enjoy it too!
     In the past few years, in lieu of a sermon/message on the day of the Annual General Meeting Rev. Andrew turns it over to a wonderful slide presentation by Christine Batten - she collects photos all year long from parishioners showing the goings-on, services, suppers, fundraisers, etc. in the life our church and community.   
“This bread we share is my body you see
Take it and eat it in memory of me”
And after they ate, he picked up a drink
And said, “There’s more in here than you think
This is My Blood that I give for you
And for those who think their life is through
Because they sin, they should be living
And remember our God is always forgiving.”
     Here's a few links for further information and enjoyment...
Theodor Seuss Geisel was, I am told, a lifelong member of a [Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod] parish in Springfield, Massachusetts.

     Following the service we had a wonderful potluck lunch.  Then it was down to business for our Annual General Meeting - we were finished within an hour.
