July 27th will be the 7th day after Pentecost
The July 20th sermon is available as an audio with a photo of the altar and the "selfie" that several joined in on is at the end.
Dave Hudson discussed how "selfies" relate to Paul. The audio is low and may be better heard with earphones.
I totally put like 10 selfies on instagram everyday!
Watch for the dinner to be held in the Fall next year.
Dave also discussed this Cherokee proverb, where an old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life...saying, there is a battle of two wolves inside us.
One is evil: It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, lies, inferiority, and ego.
The other is good: It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, and truth.
The grandson asks who will win.
The old Cherokee simply replies, the one you feed.
We heard that the Progressive Dinner was a success! The participants cooked up some tasty dishes and we hope to share recipes as the weeks progress. Here is Diane's Chicken Dijon recipe:
Chicken Dijon (marinating time up to 8 hours)
2 cups fresh bread crumbs (3-4 slices)
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp. minced garlic
2/3 cup Dijon mustard
3 Tbsp. dry white wine
*10 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 cup melted butter
*Diane buys Amish chicken from the Country Style Market in Port Huron. You can taste the difference in the quality of meat!
Combine bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, parsley, and garlic. In shallow pan, combine mustard and wine. Dip chicken pieces in mustard mixture; roll in crumb mixture to coat. Arrange in 9 x 13 inch glass baking dish. Refrigerate, covered, up to 8 hours.
To serve: Heat oven to 350. Drizzle with melted butter. Bake, uncovered, until chicken is tender and juices run clear. (50-60 minutes).
Robin Abbot will be presiding over this Sunday. The topic will be about Stewardship. Have you wondered where your talents could be best used for your church or your community? Robin will be discussing how to determine your talents and handing out a worksheet for you to complete at your leisure. It should be very interesting and all are encouraged to attend! Look for a workshop to follow in the coming months.
