August is “Lectionary Month” for us – the stories of Jacob wrestling, Joseph tossed into a pit by his brothers, Jesus’ encounter with a Canaanite woman, and then, on August 27 – the question: Who do people say I am? The spiritual work doesn’t let up just because it’s summer time! Our worship at First UMC Burlington attempts to find the balance between the power of ancient liturgies and the realities of life in the 21st century. The Bible is our backdrop, the living canvass on which we strive to paint the pictures and stories of our lives. Jesus taught some of the most complex spiritual lessons with the simplest of stories. And what could be more simple than the command to love our neighbor? We invite you to join us for worship Sunday mornings at 9:45. Check out our Facebook Page for up-to-date info – our “Leaning Toward Sunday” and other posts lets you know what’s happening in worship!
