This Sunday’s texts paint startling pictures of the horrific—the demonic—nature of sin. The church’s repeated celebration of the holy communion counters that tragic reality in a continued showing forth of the death of Jesus “until he comes.” It is a dramatic declaration of “how much God has done for you.”
Readings: Isaiah 65:1-9, Psalm 22:19-28, Galatians 3:23-29, Luke 8:26-39
Tonight - We will ring our bells at 7 pm in memory of the victims of the Orlando shooting as well as victims of the shooting at Mother Immanuel AME Church (one year ago today) and all other hate crimes.
