Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ! Greetings this morning come from the warmth of the house as we enter into some days of “real winter.” “Some days . . .” Time is a funny thing, both a constant on which we rely as we measure out hours, minutes, seconds–and years or decades as we look both back and forward. Still, the when of our placement in eternity is an interesting question that invites us to consider our impact on others and on the world we are given to inhabit. These questions are not new to us, and scripture addresses them in varying ways. Reading through lessons from the Gospel of Mark this liturgical year, we learn some of the ways Jesus suggests we conceive of eternity. It can be fascinating and also challenging.
Following worship, those who are interested in continuing the conversation regarding our “tithing in community” may gather in Fisher Hall with coffee and snacks.
Blessings and peace, Lisa
