Coming This Sunday, September 2

September 2: The letter of James is filled with more imperative verbs than any other New Testament book. "Be doers of word and not hearers only" is perhaps the most memorable imperative in the epistle. James urges readers to look into the mirror of God's perfect law, remember who they are, and act accordingly. Do you catch a glimpse of Christ when you look into the mirror? - Pastor Tambi

Quote of the Week

August 26: This Sunday we will witness the Christian baptisms of Grace Garrett and Stephanie Brown.  They have answered Jesus’ call to be his followers.  He calls them the salt of the earth and the light of the world.  These are some lofty titles.  As we  observe the beginning of their journeys as disciples, it is fitting that we pause and remember what Jesus makes of us as community of disciples.  It is for us to decide whether we will be salt and light.  In answering his call to follow we are made salt and light.

Coming This Sunday, August 19

August 19: It has been said that Biblical fathers and mothers were often lucky with God, but unlucky with their sons.  Take David, who had eighteen of them.  Absalom, the handsome daredevil that he was, knowingly breaks his father’s heart.  David’s attempt to save his son and the grief at having failed are at the heart of our text for this Sunday. —Pastor Steven

Coming This Sunday, August 12

August 12: Nathan’s parable of the poor man and his ewe lamb is legendary.  It is the only mentioning of anyone having a pet in the Bible.  David had prior moral knowledge, i.e. he knew the theft of the lamb was wrong.  The prophet used the story to paint the king a picture.  Moral knowledge had failed to guide David.  More general knowledge about doing good is not the remedy.  Nathan’s parable is world shattering.
