Pastor's Book for September:  The Reformation: A Very Short Introduction by Peter Marshall
 
The Reformation was a seismic event in European history, one which left an indelible mark on the modern world. In this Very Short Introduction, Peter Marshall illuminates the causes and consequences of this pivotal movement in western Christianity. The Reformation began as an argument about what Christians needed to do to be saved, but rapidly engulfed society in a series of fundamental changes.. The complex legacy of the Reformation is  assessed. Its religious fervor produced remarkable stories of sanctity and heroism, and some extraordinary artistic achievements. But violence, holy war, and martyrdom were equally its products. A paradox of the Reformation--that it intensified intolerance while establishing pluralism--is one we still wrestle with today.
 
Discussion on this book will be led by Pastor Scott Tuesday, September 19 at 11:00am and again at 7:00pm in the church Library.

Service at Wasatch
 

Wasatch is a proud member of Family Promise - four times per year we host families who are currently homeless for one week. Our next hosting session begins this Sunday. We have a great group of volunteers and still need several more people to help out, including Thurs night dinner, Thurs night overnight, Sat night dinner and Sat night overnight. Please consider volunteering, you can sign up at: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080f4da4ae2ba7ff2-sign. If you have any questions, please contact Luana Uluave (uluave@gmail.com) or Allison Clements (allisonclements@gmail.com). 

The Deacons are seeking volunteers. The Wasatch Presbyterian Community has a handful of people who need rides to and sometimes from Sunday services and events such as the Tuesday Women's Bible study. Although a number of people already help, the Deacons wants to expand the list of volunteer drivers. If you want to join us in providing this service, please sign the sheet that will be available at the Deacons table on Draft Day.  The Deacons also rely on volunteers to prepare or purchase simple meals and take them to congregation members who are too ill or injured to cook themselves. The service is intended to have a number of people deliver one or two meals. If you want to volunteer, please sign the other sheet that will be available at the Deacons table.
