Rev. Matt Alspaugh will speak on “Can Cities Save Us?.” Right now, about five percent of the earth’s land surface is consumed by cities, which are where a little over half of the world’s people live. The UN predicts that by 2050, over two-thirds of people will live in cities, that is to say, nearly 7 billion, and they may consume 10 percent of land area. For many, this is a dystopian scenario, of pollution, traffic, and crime. But the world’s people think differently, and are moving from farms to cities. I think the migration of people to cities is a hopeful thing. Cities may be the gateway to a stabilized world population living sustainably in a world alongside nature. We’ll explore how this might be possible. Sue Kelley will be the service leader.
Making a decision about whether to travel has become more complicated lately. Will I need a Covid test? Will I need to quarantine? How much time and money will quarantining cost me? Even with these added decisions, travel for St. Paul was far more difficult. It’s not surprising that he explained to the readers of his letter to the Philippians just who he wanted to send to them from Rome. But this explanation is much, more fascinating when you read exactly why Paul wants to send these two particular men, Timothy and Epaphroditus. Find out more during the sermon titled “Travel Plans,” using Philippians 2:19-30 as the text.
Join us via Facebook at Lakeside Presbyterian Church Chapala at 9:30 a.m. each Sunday or watch it later on Facebook. If transportation is limiting your attendance please call 332-310-5276 for a ride.
