Jay Weldon preachingThanks to excellent organization by Jay, coordinating planning and working with Carol and Mary Kay, the Reformation Sunday service was a big success. Thanks also go to Rick Douylliez of First Presbyterian in Saint Marys who officiated at the service.

It was a fun way to mark the big changes in the 1500s which made it possible for us to have the scripture and the worship in the language of the people.

    Could somebody please explain the significance of red? I know it does not have anything to do with UGA's victory on the previous day. :)

    To go along with the question about the red. Should white be worn for the All Saints Service?

    I do have to say Go Dawgs!! And how about them Sox!! This norther girl is happy today.

    Red is the church color for the Holy Spirit, probably due to the tongues of fire over the heads of the apostles on Pentecost. We don't usually color code according to church color, but have done so before for Pentecost and it makes for a festive service. Fun for one service or two a year, but more than a little funky if one had to color code clothes each week. That would have a high creepiness factor. So I would give white and gold a miss for All Saints were I you. But I am not you and will wear liturgically appropriate vestments to the service. :-)

    So, the color red was representing the Holy Spirit on Reformation Sunday as on Pentacost Sunday? I'm really happy that we don't have to wear white on All Saint's Day since we are well past Labor Day!

    Northern Girl: Glad to see you like the Dawgs! And, way to go Jags too! So sad for the Dolphins in England though!
