Blogging toward Sunday

The Lectionary readings for Sunday, June 30 include Psalm 77:1-2,11-20 and Galatians 5:1,13-25. First read the psalm, which happens to include a hymn recalling the events of the exodus.

Now turn your attention to Paul's letter to the church in Galatia. Read through the text at least twice. Then consider the following:
  1. In this portion of the letter, what grabs your attention?
  2. What does Paul write concerning freedom?
  3. What does Paul say about the law?
  4. What single commandment sums up the law?
  5. Verse 16 begins, "Live by the Spirit..." Literally, this means to "walk by the Spirit." What does "walking by the Spirit" mean to you?
  6. Note the list of vices mentioned by Paul.
  7. Note the list of virtues.
On your journey toward Sunday, may you find ways to love your neighbor as yourself. As always, I look forward to our worship time together.
