The lesson from Luke’s Gospel picks up where we left off last week, with the promised “cliff hanger” coming to what could be a frightening end. Jesus’ words first gladden those who hear him, but when the people realize that the good news he shares might mean that they will have to give up or share some of their own comfort, their joy turns to rage. Paired with what is one of the most familiar passages from all of Paul’s letters, 1 Corinthians 13:1-13, teaching us about love, we are challenged to consider closely the way we treat others and the way we regard our role in the world’s hope. Join us in prayer and song as we celebrate the good news that there is a kinder, gentler way of being in the world!
Love and peace to you all, Pastor Lisa
Please know that if we should lose power and/or internet connections, our worship service will be cancelled. So, if you have power yourself, but find that you are in the Zoom “waiting room” for very long (A minute would be long.), you may assume I am disconnected. We will try to announce this on local radio, as well.
