5th Sunday Potluck!

Hope you’re planning to join us as we share a meal and some great conversation and laughter together the last Sunday of July (July 29). Please follow this link to sign up for a main dish and either a side dish or dessert. We’ll provide bottled water and table service. If you’d like something else to drink—soft drinks, wine, etc.—feel free to bring some to share.

 

Jesus Has a Picnic?

This week’s Gospel reading is one of the best-known stories in the Bible. For most, it’s basically a warm fuzzy: Jesus has a picnic. You can almost see everyone sitting on the lush green grass eating and laughing. You can almost imagine the red checkered tablecloths spread on the ground...

But don’t.

The textual and historical context tells us this is about something radically different: a revolution. Only one that’s totally unexpected, based on a shocking revolutionary act, and led by impossibly unqualified revolutionaries.

See you Sunday.
