The Greatest of These is Love
So often the voices around us tell us to limit our faith. They demand that we apply tests and conditions before we reach out to others, that we reserve our compassion for only those who most deserving. Those voices speak to us from the world’s brokenness, entrenched in an economy of scarcity, a zero-sum world, where if I have “my” share, there will not be enough for you.
But our God cries out to us, in the words of scripture and in the life and death and resurrection of God’s son, Jesus, saying that in God’s Kingdom, there is no deserving. There is only love: abundant, infinite love, given freely for us and to us, not because of who we are, but because of who God is.
As people of faith, we know that all we have and all we are, are gifts from God. We reach out in love, as God does, not because of our merit or the merits of those we serve. We reach out because of who we are, because of who God created us to be, and we give and give and give, until God’s abundance is known and God’s Kingdom is fully realized in our midst.

Can We Talk?
This year Fairlington celebrates 70 years as a Christian congregation. Given our strong past, now is the time to discuss how our building and facilities can best support our mission for the future. At the three remaining congregational conversations we will gather as a congregation to discuss the relationship between our mission and our building and facilities. We hope you will join your voice to the conversation by attending one of these sessions. Every person, regardless of age or faith history, has a unique and God-given voice. Let's talk together.

LEND A HAND AT THE POTATO DROP
Potato Drop - Help with Hunger Relief - On Sunday, October 26 the St. Andrew Club is sponsoring a Potato Drop from 8:30 am-1:00 pm. The purpose is to provide a hands-on opportunity to address hunger in our community. That morning a tractor-trailer carrying hundreds of bags of potatoes will be in the church parking lot. The potatoes will be re-bagged and distributed to area food banks.
Meet other volunteers in the parking lot on Van Dorn St.
Volunteers are needed for a variety of jobs. Children and adults of all ages can find a suitable task.
How do you volunteer?
