This week Pastor Tom will
bring the message...
Take Joy In the Word
This Sunday, we read from Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-6, 8-10 & Luke 4:14-30. The people are in tears of joy as the words of scripture are read before them in Nehemiah. While Luke tells us of Jesus reading words of hope and fulfillment in a synagogue in Nazareth.
Do the words of scripture bring you joy?
Do the words of scripture challenge you?
Each of us has a perception of reality informed by our life experiences. How do we respond when scripture illuminates a lesson counter to our perceived reality?
Sunday, January 30: Authority with Love
Jeremiah 1:4-10 & 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 - The prophet Jeremiah receives God word with the authority to "uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant." Yet, Paul teaches us of acting in and with Love.
Sunday, February 6: God Qualifies the Called
Isaiah 6:1-8 & Luke 5:1-11 - Isaiah is called by God, though he is afraid for he is a man of unclean lips who lives among an unclean people. We see a similar reaction from Simon when Jesus calls him to be a fisher of men and gives him the name Peter.
Sunday, February 13: Blessings for the Broken
Jeremiah 17:5-10 & Luke 6:17-26 - Jeremiah speaks of God's blessings to those who trust in the Lord and a curse to those who trust in humans. Luke shares a similar message through Jesus' teachings of the beatitudes; the reversal of who is blessed and who will know woes.
Sunday, February 20: Radical Forgiveness
Genesis 45:3-11, 15 & Luke 6:27-38 - Joseph forgives his brothers in Genesis, while Jesus teaches on a radical form of hospitality and forgiveness in Luke. Do these radical ideas of hospitality and forgiveness have a place in society today?
