A National Holiday

The beginning of September brings a Holy Day of sorts for all of us.  Labor Day is a civic holiday to celebrate at least two things: 1 – the opportunity for work; and 2 – the American Labor Movement.  As Lutheran Christians we go deeper with this and view all work as part of God’s calling and his provision of our daily bread.  All Christians are doing the work of God, regardless of where or what they do in their honorable vocation in life.

Dressing the Part

To celebrate this blessing of vocation we will be taking the Sunday of Labor Day weekend to give thanks for the blessings of daily bread, of work, of school, of family, etc.  To enhance our time together you are invited to wear the clothes or uniform of your current, prior to retirement, or planned for vocation (such as students or children seeking to enter a certain career).  No matter what, know that we will be giving thanks for, and honoring, all that God has called each of us to do as part of his greater work in the world.  Know that who each of us is and what God has called and equipped each of us to do is important.  On Sunday, September 4, we will take time to give thanks for all which God calls and equips us to do.

Food and Fellowship

As part of this we will have a pot-luck lunch following worship.  The committee in charge of this event will provide barbecue pork and condiments, along with beverages.  You are invited to bring a side, salad or dessert to share.
