Worship on this holiday weekend focused on celebration of the date of our country's declaration of independence. The Rev. Canon Jim McCaslin led off the message with a review of historical truth and fiction about the day, i.e. Only 58% of Americans know who we declared independence from. But the truth in the hearts of those making that move was what really told the story. A sovereign God was declared as the underpinning of that declaration and the origin of all true freedom, a message reiterated in the Scripture of the day.
The Scripture Lessons for the Day were:
- Deuteronomy 10:17-21
- Galatians 5:1, 13-25
- Matthew 5:43-48
