Gordon Thomas WardOn Sunday, November 3, Gordon Thomas Ward will be teaching the 9:15 a.m. Adult Education Sunday Morning Seminar at the Parish House of the Presbyterian Church in Morristown, 65 South Street.

His topic, Tracing Infinity, will show you how close our lives are to heaven and the source of our existence.  Meadows, mountains, gardens, and coastlines, are all God’s classrooms for Gordon Thomas Ward, and he will teach you how you can find evidence of God wherever you happen to be.

Our lives are saturated in God, even when we feel we are in the wild lands and winters of our lives.  Come and see how the Divine touches us all on our incredible journeys.  Mr. Ward is a writer, presenter, and musician.  Born in Tacoma, Washington, his family moved to New Jersey dividing its time between the family’s home in NJ and a summer cottage in Maine.  He has worked as the Ministry Programs Director at the new Vernon Presbyterian Church, and as a English and history teacher.  He currently divides his professional time between writing and lecturing.

Join us for worship with Communion on Sunday at 9:15 and 11 a.m. in the our Sanctuary at 57 East Park Place.   Reverend Dr. David Smazik will lead the service with a sermon entitled, “Gain a New Perspective“.  We will be recognizing Pastor Cindy Alloway’s ministry at PCM during the service.  Child care is available at Howard House, next door to the church.   Church School for children ages 2 through 14 will be held at 9:15 a.m. in the Parish House at 65 South Street.

The Military Ministry is sponsoring a letter-writing campaign in support of our military personnel abroad. Tables will be set up in the Narthex of the Sanctuary for the next two Sundays.  Stop by and write a note of appreciation and encouragement. Kids, too!  Military personnel can also use items, such as toiletries, books and games, and nonperishable/non-melting snack foods. Bring your donations to bins at the church or the Parish House.

On Sunday afternoon, stop by for a Bones and Stones tour of PCM’s 380 year-old church and graveyard guided by Morris Tourism.  Learn who’s buried in the historic graveyard, the history of the church and even meet a few spirits. The Tourism Bureau offers this spooky walking tour of a Colonial-era burying ground that opened in 1733. There will be two tours at 2:00 and 3:00 p.m.

Pre-registration and payment required ($12) by calling 973-631-5151. Tours are one hour and begin inside the church located at 57 Park Place, on the Green in Morristown.  They are co-sponsored by Morris Tourism, The Presbyterian Church in Morristown and the Schuyler-Hamilton House/D.A.R.

Life of PiFaith on Film will screen Life of Pi at 4 p.m. on Sunday at our Parish House on 65 South Street.  This Oscar winning film tells the tale of a deeply religious teenager named Pi who is cast adrift from a shipwreck with a ferocious tiger.  The journey tests Pi’s survival skills, ingenuity and faith.  It is rated PG.  Join us for the film, discussion and salad, pizza, dessert and beverages.
