  3. I find the Revised Common Lectionary passages for Sept 11 to cover most of the concerns of the day... Exodus 14:19-31, Exodus 15:1b-11, 20-21, Genesis 50:15-21, Romans 14:1-12, and finally... Matthew 18:21-35 18:21 Then Peter came and said to him, "Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?" 18:22 Jesus said to him, "Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.

  8. I was able to open it on a Mac using Adobe Reader 7 and 9. HOWEVER, there is something in the encoding that makes it impossible to select and copy any of the text.

  10. Our children's sermon volunteer would love some suggestions for ways to take the children's sermon this day. I saw the education piece also on the website and have directed him there for some help. Are there other resources that I haven't found yet that might be good for children's sermons?
