This Sunday, July 29 at 11:00 a.m. we will hear the final sermon in the series “At the Table.”
In this series, we have been focusing on how some of Jesus’ best stories are about being at the table. There are the stories of the loaves and fish, bread and wine, Mary and Martha, a tax collector and Pharisees.
Throughout the Gospels, it seems Jesus was either going to or coming from a meal table. In this sermon series, we are considering together the lessons we learn at the table with Jesus.
This week Rev. David J. Hanna will deliver the sermon At The Table: One Thing We Can’t Do based on Luke 10:38-42, when Jesus visits Mary and Martha.
To be Christian means we see two different worlds. We see the world as God intends and as Jesus shows us. And we see the world as it is – a violent world, a hurting world. It is hard for us as a nation to have an honest conversation about the choice of violence, about the choice to hurt, without pointing at the flaws on the other side, without making those on the other side somehow less than human. It’s destroying us – from the inside out. So what we need to do is listen to the word of Jesus.
All are welcome to join us following the service for fellowship in the Chalice Room, nest to the Sanctuary.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
