Preach that Labor Day Might Be God’s Favorite Holiday?

In our Sanctuary (no Zoom). Sure, I can do that, said Rev. Barnaby in his first sermon since returning from sabbatical. Quilts told this story, just as they did Kathryn Schloff’s on a past Sunday. We shared our plate with Campaign Legal Center. Followed by social hour in Ann Ross Fellowship Hall. This was not recorded.
