Sunday Worship


I Samuel 25:12-13, 21-23-24, 32-35        The Inclusive Bible

David’s followers turned around immediately and went back to David and reported what the wealthy herder said.  David responded immediately by strapping on his sword, and commanded, “Everyone , strap on your swords!”  About 400 sent up with David, while 200 stayed back to guard their supplies.

David said, “It is a waste of our time to protect Nabal’s property in the desert.  He repaid us with evil for our goodness.

As soon as Abigail spotted David approaching she dismounted and prostrated before David in homage.  As she prostrated she said, “Sovereign One, blame me, and please allow me, your humble handmaid, to speak my piece.”

David said to Abigail, “Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Israel, who today sends you to meet with me.  Blessings to you for your good sense; blessings to you for saving me today from the guilt of bloodshed and from avenging myself with my own hands.  Otherwise, as surely as Yahweh the God of Israel lives, who kept me from harming you, if you had not come quickly to meet me, not one make of Nabal’s household would have been alive by daybreak.”

Then David accepted from her what she had brought, and said, “Return to your home in peace!  For I have heard your wise counsel and granted your request.”

Matthew 5:9                                   The Inclusive Bible

Blessed are those who work for peace:  They will be called children of God.

Worship at Dumbarton begins at 11:00 am and usually lasts a little longer than an hour.  Nursery care and supervised play is available for infants and young children through second grade.  Each worship service includes a children’s message.  Children are always welcome in worship and may gather with Jeehye at the Children's Table at the rear of the worship space for quiet activities.

Refreshments and conversation follow worship in the Social Hall. All are welcome!
