E-News - August 31

Join us for Worship Sunday at 10:30

The prophet Jeremiah speaks of the incurable wound of his suffering, yet finds in God's words the delight of his heart. When Peter doesn't grasp Jesus' words about suffering, Jesus tells the disciples they will find their lives in losing them. Such sacrificial love is described by Paul when he urges us to associate with the lowly and not repay evil with evil. In worship we gather as a community that we might offer ourselves for the sake of our suffering world.

 Readings: Jeremiah 15:15-21, Psalm 26:1-8, Romans 12:9-21, Matthew 16:21-28

Next Sunday, September 7 - We are excited to welcome several guests, from Brazil, including Rev. Marcia Blasi, Felipe Gustavo Koch Buttelli, Dr. Roger Wanke, and our long-time friend of First Trinity, Dr. Vitor Westhelle (USA & Brazil)! We will have lunch after worship. Bring something yummy to share?
