On Sunday, September 27, First Church celebrated Young Adult Minister Kit Novotny and her new ministry at the church as she was about to be formally installed in her position. Dr. David Ruhe was the morning's guest preacher. David was the former Senior Minister of Plymouth UCC in Des Moines, Iowa, and was Kit's colleague and mentor there before she was called to Berkeley. In his sermon, David reflects on the "new wine in old wineskins" passage in Matthew 9:9-17. He explores how the churches and individuals need to be ready to be transformed by the "new that is before us," that things just won't be the same.
