Sunday's Coming ~ October 4, 2015

This week's message takes us to the end of our five weeks in John 3 and 4.  We’ve enjoyed Jesus’ conversations with a religious man seeking Jesus and with an unnamed woman Jesus was seeking.  We found that we are truly free of a past we can’t change and a future we can’t control when we receive our true identity in Christ.  

As we come to the final piece, we’ll see what happens in our lives when we live out a future rooted in who God is (our Father) and who we are (his daughters and sons).  And, we’ll see what’s at stake when we do.

Fitting, too, is that this week we will celebrate communion.  October communion is often called “World Wide Communion.” How appropriate on a day when the text has Jesus with people from Samaria.  And, our services will have people from many countries and ethnicities.  The breads we use, too, will feature different varieties to remind us of the diversity in God’s kingdom.

Finally, a heads up for next week.  On October 11 at 2:30 p.m. we will hold a special worship service for the ordination of Ben Vos!  His name (well, title anyway) will change to Reverend Benjamin D. Vos!  Be sure to come - there will be pie afterwards!
