My Prayer For You

Pastor’s Prayer for 8-27-17

Praise to You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the universe,
Creator of the fruit of the vine.
Praise to You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the universe
who finding favor with us, sanctified us with mitzvot.
In love and favor, You made the holy Shabat our heritage
as a reminder of the work of Creation.
As first among our sacred days, it recalls the Exodus from Egypt.
You chose us and set us apart from the peoples.
In love and favor You have given us Your holy Shabbat as an inheritance.
Praise to You, Adonai, who sanctifies Shabbat.

–Jewish Evening Prayer (The Kiddush)

A Man Called Ove

A Man Called Ove, featuring Rolf Lassgård, Bahar Pars, and Filip Berg

Rated PG-13

–Review by Ashley Linne

A Man Called Ove is a story about someone who appears to be the typical cantankerous “old man next door” until you get to know him. A moving and dark comedy from Sweden, it was nominated for two Academy Awards and won or was nominated for other awards throughout Europe and the United States.

When we first meet Ove, he isn’t likeable at all. He has taken it upon himself to daily enforce numerous neighborhood rules and guidelines, functioning as his own neighborhood watch. But what is he protecting? He seems to have total disregard for his neighbors and expects them to yield to his wishes. He doesn’t seem like the type of person to have had any sort of happiness in his life. read more…
