A Dispensation

February 19, 2017



Blessings to you all,


This weekend looks like it will be great holiday weekend with Sunday right in the middle of it.  If you are a skier – and are tugged to the hills this weekend – I have been authorized by the sheer virtue of my authoritative position – to offer dispensation to anyone wishing to enjoy God’s creation in the snow instead of worshipping with a loving, caring, vitally compassionate family of faith here in this little city in the valley. 


Not to over-due the enticement thing – but – we will be reading from Leviticus (do I hear a big “yay” on that one).  It will not be from the juicier Levitical texts.  (Leviticus 10:1-2, 9-10 does mention concern for the poor and the alien which may resonate a bit in our time and in our little corner of God’s creation.  Our second reading will be from 1 Corinthians 3:10-11, 16-17 and finally Matthew 5:38-48.  The passage from Matthew is the troubling and challenging text which mentions turning the other cheek, giving up more of your clothing and walking the extra mile.   As you no doubt can discern from the above texts, the sermon will be entitled:  “The Zone of Wholeness” which finds its genesis in Matthew 5:48.  


I am looking forward to seeing you on Sunday or seeing a breath-taking photo from the hills. 


Have a great and safe weekend


God Bless You ALL


In Faith
