Neil Postman writes ‘But in the end, science does not provide the answers most of us require. Its story of our origins and of our end is, to say the least, unsatisfactory. To the question, "How did it all begin?" science answers, "Probably by an accident." To the question, "How will it all end?" science answers, "Probably by an accident." And to many people, the accidental life is not worth living. Moreover, the science-god has no answer to the question, "Why are we here?" and, to the question, "What moral instructions do you give us?" the science-god maintains silence. It places itself at the service of both the beneficent and the cruel, and its grand moral impartiality, if not indifference, makes it, in the end, no god at all.'
Plans: Pastor Chris will be on vacation from June 23 to July 15. Pastor Bob Bahr has kindly agreed to step in. He’ll be at the church for two days a week, and he will be speaking at WVBC on June 19 and 26, and July 3 and 10. Gerry Teichrob will be speaking on July 17.
Bob has recommended two books as background for his Revelation sermons:
Serving opportunities: we’re always pleased if you’re able to help at WVBC. Some current needs are:
If you can help, please contact Toni Pankratz in the church office.
In-person services: we are now having refreshments after the service to accompany our post-service fellowship in the foyer. Attenders are still able to mask and distance themselves if they feel they need to - conscience or concern for personal safety may affect their decision and others should be respectful of this.
Mark your calendars for these great events coming up.
