The Surprising Word

August 12, 2016

 

Blessings All,

 

There are some passages in scripture which scream out to be preached carrying an affirming – confirming word.  I am drawn to those scriptures.  Then there are other passages which scream out – yet to me are not very compelling.  I am tempted to seek another passage to preach on.  There are a bunch of them in 1200 pages of scripture.  Luke 12: 49-56 is just one of those passages which I am not compelled to use - yet – on Sunday we are going to head on into some troubled and troubling waters.  Come and join the fun.  We will get a bit of help from Jeremiah 23:23-20 with a sermon entitled:  “The Surprising Word.” 

 

Just a reminder – the worship service on the 21st of August will be at the River’s Edge Campground beginning at 10:00.  This will be an informal service followed by a picnic – bring something to eat and something to share.  There will be plenty of activities including the use of the pool (remember swimsuits).  Kayaks can be rented or you can bring your own if you wish to kayak.  it should be fun time- invite friends.

 

Peace to you all,

 

Gary
