October 11, 2015, Twentieth Sunday After Pentecost
Progressing through the “ordinary time”, toward Kindomtide, sustained by and filled with the Holy Spirit, we follow our calling in making disciples after witnessing Pentecost. Our focus has moved from Mathew this past year to the Gospel of Mark for this second year of a three year cycle. As you read this week, consider how the Living Word speaks to you. Jesus is calling you to respond to his Word. Consider the hopeful questions: Where does my help come from? Where do I see God active in the world? How is God calling me to live my life? These scriptures point us toward these profound questions and to faith and to the saving grace of God. It is our hope and prayer that your worship experience be enhanced as you gain a greater sense that God is with you in Jesus Christ.
