Come join us for Christ the King Sunday, November 25th.  Holy Communion Worship is at 10:30 AM.  This Sunday we have asked our "millenials" to lead our worship service.  The young people of today are asked to jump into this kingdom and lead us into the struggle and embrace the both/and of Lutheran Identity.

Thank you to Eric Jensen for the sermon.  Eric has been part of our mission and ministry together in Christ for all his life. He is currently a full-time student at SLCC studying journalism, and is a monthly contributor to our newsletter, The Trumpet, with his Faith and Sports articles. Eric recently received the Flying J scholarship to further his academic studies at SLCC.  Eric plans to continue his degree work at the University of Utah.
 
Thank you to Mallory deForest for leading us in our worship.  Mallory is a life-long Lutheran and daughter of two ELCA pastors.  She is an active member of our congregation who works full-time as a performance artist and producer at Evermore Park in Pleasant Grove, UT.  Evermore is an interactive fantasy experience that comes to life through theatrical performance, movie quality costuming, state of the art effects, and cutting-edge technologies. The theme for December is the world of Charles Dickens. www.evermore.com

We are called to follow our king into places of service and suffering. We are called to live each day in two worlds, two realities, two kingdoms—the kingdom of God and the kingdom of this world. We cannot permanently retreat from the real world that surrounds us with its pain and suffering, its hunger and disease, its wars and violence of all shapes and sizes. We are called by God to imitate Christ and put ourselves into the midst of the world’s need. We are called by God to struggle with the world we see all around us, to be active participants in making this world a better place for everyone. We are called to plunge into the secular now, the world, to get in it up to our necks.

Yes, we live in two worlds, and the struggle is to not become so enamored of the one that we lose sight of the other. With Christ the King as our guide, we are called to see the hand of God moving in our midst, holding us up with divine love, pointing and gently nudging us in the direction of doing right, holding us back from danger and harm, filling the ordinary with mystery, so that like Jeremiah, the Psalmist and the thief upon the cross we may grab onto hope in the midst of desperate times!   ~ Rev. Delton Chilton, Living Lutheran


At Mount Tabor we believe that living God's love begins with the open invitation to all people to join us at the Meal that is central to our worship life. Inclusive, unconditional love meets us where Christ gives himself freely to us. In the Meal of holy communion, we remember and celebrate Jesus' sacrificial love that empowers our serving in the world. For us, "grace" means that God meets us just as we are with joy and new life. This is why we worship God together every week.

All are invited. All are welcome: young and old, doubters and believers, seekers and disciples. Our diversity at the Meal reflects the beauty of our Creator's wisdom. Come celebrate with us, and be empowered by God's love for justice, peace, and community!


This is What Love Looks Like!

The journey of making our 2019 ministry intiatives began October 14.  Our Stewardship for All Seasons team is Jean Stephenson, Bruce Palenski, Mallory deForest, Stephanie Wilson and Pr. David.  In October we learned more about the potenial of a Mount Tabor App and the VOA Homeless Youth Resource Center. A hygiene kit service project was completed on Sunday October 21 for Homeless Youth Resource Center.  Maud's Cafe, an 8-12 week employment training program for the youth at the Center, catered our fellowship after worship that day.  And on Sunday November 11th, we were invited to share our Statements of Intent to express our generosity.  Thank you Tabor for helping our congregation find these new ways to live God's love for others!


Faith, Science, Ethics Roundtable for November

The Roundtable will meet Monday, November 26th from 11:30am to 1pm in Room 117 of the Research Administration Bldg at the University of Utah

Dr. Lee Smith from the University of Utah will present on the topic of "How Health Science and Spirituality Mutually Inform Each Other"

Overview:
How does mental distress impact health? 
And how might spirituality impact mental distress?
How do Health Science proven principles of resilience that predict total well being (health) compare to those taught by our great spiritual sages? (For our discussion here we'll focus on the core teachings of Jesus, but feel free to expand this to other traditions as well.) Could it be that health science could guide what are good (healthy) spiritual practices, and that spiritual practices and precepts could  inform how to best improve total health?
 
Two primary articles for consideration:
1. The Disease Resistant Personality (From a Mind Body Health Textbook)
 
Also for referral, a brief description of :


Maud’s Café is a newly-built coffee shop that will offer an 8-12 week employment training program for the youth from Volunteers of America, Utah’s Homeless Youth Resource Center, Young Men’s and Women’s Transition Homes. Patrons of Maud’s will be supporting the Wasatch Front economy by purchasing quality, locally-produced goods. Join us in giving homeless youth the opportunity to contribute to our community, as they stabilize their lives and work toward self-sufficiency.
