Pilgrim Celebrates World Communion Sunday
On October 2, Pilgrim Congregational Church will celebrate World Communion Sunday with a guest speaker from the United Church of Christ from the Philippines, Dr. Eleazar Fernandez. Fernandez is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ in the Philippines. He earned his M.Div. from Union Theological Seminary in the Philippines, his Th.M. from Princeton Theological Seminary, and his Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University. He is the author of Reimagining the Human: Theological Anthropology in Response to Systemic Evil.
For some years, the Minnesota Conference to which Pilgrim belongs has had a partnership with the UCCP-Southeast Mindaneo Jurisdiction. Dr. Fernandez helped build this relationship and will talk about it at Pilgrim. In addition to preaching at the 10:00 worship service, he will entertain questions and answers during an adult education forum beginning at 11:20.
