Hello Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
We will take good care of ourselves by remembering the Sabbath and keeping it holy through participating in our Sunday worship recording. Let’s make it a real priority to honor God through the ongoing, detailed and faithful work of our video production team, Kent Madsen and Barbara Rice. We are so blessed to have their gifts in our church!
Our themes from the scriptures are centered around what has come to be known as “Good Shepherd Sunday”. A welcome focus and respite from the difficult and controversial work of seeking ways to offer God’s prophetic Word to the many injustices that the world is engaged in. So we turn from an “afflicting the comfortable” aspect of the encounter with God’s Word (last Sunday – Amos – Archbishop Oscar Romero, John the Baptist and Jesus), and lift up the ways in which we “comfort the afflicted” – including ourselves as we do the hard work of having compassion for those who are “missing” from receiving the fruits of God’s creation.
