We have an urgent need for Preschool Sunday School teachers. This group is composed of 4 children around ages 3-5yr. They are active, cute and eager to learn. They need a teacher or two who help them learn about God's love. Can you help? Contact Heather as soon as possible.

The Web of Meaning - from Pastor Rob
spider web
        "We (humans) weave our lives into a web of words, like spiders who spin their creations from within themselves and trap reality in these very meshes - from moment to moment, in both silent monologue and social discourse, and across the divide of time, as we learn about the past and  communicate it." i
        It may be impossible, but give this a try. Imagine you are outside your own life, looking in at it, as an observer. If you were a fly on the kitchen wall, observing your life, watching the interactions with family members, seeing from all points of view, hearing every phone conversation, watching emails and texts read, what would you see? It's hard. We don't observe our own lives, we live them. This is akin to asking a fish to be consciously aware of the ocean. But try it.
        What are the words that you use to make sense of the world in which you live? If you were looking at our house, hearing the back-and-forth between my wife and me, you might hear one of us say in a mock old man voice, "I'm freezing," or, "get off my lawn." Usually this is followed up by a giggle. You have no idea what we're discussing or what we mean by this phraseology, but here's hint: it has little to do with temperature or grass. Maybe you'd pick it up from context, maybe not. Based on circumstance, tone, and past experience, Candy and I understand one another perfectly with such phrases. These are a part of the web of words in which we live, a web we've woven over 15 years of marriage.
