Coming This Sunday, May 20

May 20, 2012: In Scripture, it is given to God to read the human heart.  This was first evidenced with Pharaoh.  One might say that the Egyptian ruler died of heart trouble.  The Greek from which we get our word “cardiologist” appears twice in the Book of Acts.  The first is in our suggested reading for this Sunday.  With the death of Judas the circle of the Twelve is splintered.  Jesus has ascended into heaven and the disciples gather to mend the breach.  They prayed, “Lord, who knowest the hearts of men/women, show which of these two thou hast chosen to take Judas’ place.”  This Sunday we will explore God the cardiologist. -Pastor Steven
