One Final Time

I’m looking forward to worship tomorrow at 8:15 and 10:30. It will be my final Sunday with all of you. Jenny’s coming back to say farewell too (we didn’t have a chance to do much of that during COVID-19). We’ll have the sacrament of Baptism (Allison Sue Heger) at the early service and the sacrament of Holy Communion at both services. I look forward to feasting with you all one last time.

P.S. I plan to put this service online at: https://abilenefirstumc.org/onlineworship/

NRSVue

Last week, you may have noticed that instead of the NRSV (New Revised Standard Version), we used the NRSVue. The “ue” stands for “updated edition.” It’s been more than 30 years since the NRSV was first released, and it was time for an update

I did some research, compared the two, and liked what I saw. One example is that in Matthew 2, “wise men” is now “magi.” You can read more about it here.
