Bible Text: Matthew 14:13-21 | Speaker: Rev. Dr. Carolyn Scanlan-Holmes | August marks 51 years since a group of like-minded people came together on a farm in upstate New York to get away from the noise of the world, the depressing news of the Vietnam War, and come together in peace and harmony. The event became known as Woodstock. The promoters planned for 10 – 25k people but when the weekend arrived over 500k people showed up. Some would think with constant rain falling all weekend, tired, wasted people the event would be a disaster. But that was not the case. People coming together with a common goal of listening to music in the peace found a way to not only get along but truly became a community of love and care. People who come together for a common cause tend to support one another and take care of one another. Folks who followed Jesus tended to behave much the same way. They all had the common cause of following and finding something more than what the government and religion had to offer. Many would leave their jobs, families, and the only way of life the knew of in order to follow Jesus.
Join us on Sunday as we look at the story of a group of people who gather on a hillside to hear a message of hope and use the opportunity to make a miracle. Join us Sunday for “Feeling Groovy”
