Worship Themes this Month

October 8

Abject Bodies and the Jesus Movement 

Many of us have bodies that aren’t ‘right’ for the standards of this day: we are too old, too this, too that.  Bartimaeus was all of the above, and found healing with Jesus    Mark 10:46-52

October 15

The Greatest Commandment!     

There is a description of liberal Christians, somewhat pejorative, that we are ‘Golden Rule Christians’, content with merely loving our neighbors and not wrestling with the really demanding Scriptures.  But Jesus seems to hold loving God and loving your neighbor.  They are, for him, one law.  He might be onto something (ya think?)!  Matthew 22:34-40         

October 22 

Basic Truths

Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, Give to God what is God’s, says Jesus.  But which is which?  To tell the truth, we are building the foundation for this year’s stewardship campaign, which is gratitude for God’s work and love.        Matthew 22:15-22     

October 29

500th Anniversary of the Reformation: A continuing Reformation

Admittedly, the story of Luther’s pounding his 95 Theses for theological debate is not a direct part of our heritage, but it did launch a general reformation of western Christianity that continues to this day.  We continue the work of reformation both with ourselves and with our society. Romans 1:16-17.
