St. James UMC E-Weekly 08.31.22
This Sunday is Communion Sunday. It was brought to our attention that Matt did not wear gloves while he served Communion. The office has been in contact with the CDC and was told that wearing gloves does more harm than good. The gloves would only help to protect Matt from germs if he has any open sours on his hands. If hands are sanitized before serving communion, and he does not touch anyone's hands, there will be no cross-contamination. For Matt to do this more effectively, we ask everyone to cup their hands together and allow Matt to drop the host into their cupped hands. This will ensure that he does not pick up germs from your hands and give them to the next person in line. If you have any questions, please fill free to contact the office or Matt.
Beginning September 14th, 2022

I'll Be The Judge Of That!
The first to speak in court sounds right -- until the cross-examination begins.
Father, forgive me when I make hasty judgments about another person. Sometimes with no information at all, I assume I know their story and worse yet, that I could share their story with someone else. The fact is, I don't know their story or I probably only know a thread of their story and it's been woven by so many hands, I have no clear idea of the truth.
I know that I do not like people making snap judgments about me. I want only You to judge me according to my worth in the eyes of Jesus. Help me remember that wherever I go so that I see everyone as an extension of Your love.
I ask Your forgiveness for each time I set myself up to be the judge of someone else. Replace judgment with truth and understanding. Amen.
I have hidden Your word in my heart that I might not sin against You.
Psalm 119:11 (NIV)
