Please consider sending in short news items as Aaron suggested for a "News from the Flock" column in our paper newsletter.  Please note, the email address given was incorrectly typed.  The correct email is:   aaron@ukulele.church

PLEASE NOTE:   Our new phone system is installed.  However, the feature that sends voicemails by email to staff members at home will not be installed until tomorrow.   Because Dorothy is on vacation this week, please direct any time-sensitive messages to Emile.  You may do so by calling my cell phone directly - or by e-mailing me (which can even be done by hitting "reply" to this e-mail.)

 
Devotion for Thursday, August 27th

A Video Devotion for Children (and Children-at-Heart) by Rachel Doll
Dear Friends, below is the first of what may become a regular offering.   Rachel shares a video devotion for the children of our church - and those of us who are children-at-heart.

The scripture reading for this week is from Exodus 3.  (This Sunday's worship will also be based on Exodus 3.)

For those who of you who have children who may be video-ed out due to e-school today, this is a video that will keep until the weekend!
Rachel's Video Devotion for Thursday, August 27th

Exodus 3:1-15 (NRSV)

1Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law Jethro, the priest of Midian; he led his flock beyond the wilderness, and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. 2There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of fire out of a bush; he looked, and the bush was blazing, yet it was not consumed. 3Then Moses said, “I must turn aside and look at this great sight, and see why the bush is not burned up.” 4When the LORD saw that he had turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” 5Then he said, “Come no closer! Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” 6He said further, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.

7Then the LORD said, “I have observed the misery of my people who are in Egypt; I have heard their cry on account of their taskmasters. Indeed, I know their sufferings, 8and I have come down to deliver them from the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land to a good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey, to the country of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites. 9The cry of the Israelites has now come to me; I have also seen how the Egyptians oppress them. 10So come, I will send you to Pharaoh to bring my people, the Israelites, out of Egypt.” 11But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” 12He said, “I will be with you; and this shall be the sign for you that it is I who sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall worship God on this mountain.”

13But Moses said to God, “If I come to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your ancestors has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” 14God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” He said further, “Thus you shall say to the Israelites, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” 15God also said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the Israelites, ‘The LORD, the God of your ancestors, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you’:
     This is my name forever,
     and this my title for all generations.”
