JOIN US:  The earliest known instruction manual of the Christian church is called the Didache ("didache," pronounced 'di-dah-KAY' is a Greek word meaning "teaching.")  The Dicache was written at the end of the first century of the Christian era.  The Didache's official title is "The Teaching of the Lord to the Gentiles by the Twelve Apostles," and it contains various instructions concerning Christian ethics and worship practices and forms of church organization.  And one of its instructions is this:  "Meet toether frequently in order to search for what is good for your souls."  And so, every Sunday still, we stop for a moment in order to see what is REALLY TRUE beneath what we only thought was true.  And this Sunday (Nov. 18th), we get to share a meal together, too.  Thanksgiving Potluck Lunch will be served at Upsala Presbyterian Church on Sunday, following the 10 A.M. worship service!  Bring a favorite Thanksgiving food dish to share.
