Blogging through June

Miniature depiction of Andrei Rublev's "Trinity"

Looking out over the remaining Sundays in June, this Sunday we will celebrate Trinity Sunday. Thereafter, we begin the summer sermon series, "Questions Jesus Asked." Each week in preparation for worship, take some time to read the text/s and reflect on the statements or questions that are posed. Then, let us gather in spirit and in truth to worship God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit. 

June 15: Trinity Sunday
Read 2 Corinthians 13:11-13 and Matthew 28:16-20 and consider the following:
  1. What makes these texts appropriate for Trinity Sunday?
  2. How do you imagine the Trinity?
  3. Does thinking of God in three persons (Father, Son, and Spirit) make a difference to your faith walk? If so, how?

June 22: Is it lawful to do good or harm on the Sabbath?
Read Mark 2:23-3:6.

At the start of the summer sermon series "Questions Jesus Asked," glance over the Gospel of Mark and note every question Jesus asks. The truth is Jesus asks many more questions than he answers throughout his ministry. What does this teach us about Jesus? About our role as his disciples?

June 29: Were Not All Ten Made Clean?
Read Luke 17:11-19.

  1. How many lepers approach Jesus? 
  2. How many return to give thanks?
  3. What does it really mean to be healed?

As your pastor, I look forward to our time of worship. See you Sunday!
