If we are going to “be dressed for action” as Jesus instructs us in Luke 12:35 there are several things we can do to prepare. A runner needs to complete their warm ups and get in the blocks to start the race.
 
This Sunday we will discover several intentional actions which a Christian can take to be ready for action.

Second Reading:  Luke 11:1-13 NRSV

Those who were closest to Jesus found themselves seeking a deeper relationship with the Lord. We should also be encouraged to find methods and opportunities that will help us grow deeper in faith as we experience the real presence of Jesus in our lives. This Sunday’s message will help each of us explore spiritual practices that may deepen our experience of Christ’s presence in our lives and provide guidance for life’s decisions.

First Reading:  Colossians 1:15-28 NRSV
Second Reading:  Luke 10:38-42 NRSV
Sermon Title: “Worried & Distracted”
 
This week’s Gospel reading from Luke 10 presents us with two different responses to Jesus’s presence in the home. Mary sees an opportunity to be with Jesus while Martha is preoccupied by doing things for him. As we reflect upon this encounter we will all be encouraged to evaluate how we use time and develop relationships.

First Reading:  Amos 7:7-17 NRSV
Second Reading:  Luke 10:25-37 NRSV
Sermon Title: “Setting the Standard”
 
Amos holds a plumb line to show Israel how far they have strayed from the Lord.
Jesus holds up a different measure as he answers the question, “Who is my neighbor?” The challenge for people of faith is to make the move from judgement to mercy.
Rather than pointing out how far people are from God, we have an opportunity through Christian service to draw them closer to the Lord.

Trinity Sunday
Pastor Kent Jackson
 
First Reading:  Job 1 NRSV
Second Reading:  Job 42 NRSV
Sermon Title: “The Promise of Presence”
 
This week’s Sermon by Requests poses the question, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” Job could be the poster child for this question. However, in the midst of his trials Job asks the Lord, “Why do good things happen to bad people?” This week we will all be invited to discover how God is with us throughout the challenging times while being reminded that we are all in need of the Lord’s mercy, forgiveness and grace.

Pentecost Sunday
Pastor Kent Jackson
 
First Reading:  Genesis 11:1-9 NRSV
Second Reading:  Acts 2:1-13 NRSV
Sermon Title: “Filled with the Holy Spirit”
 
The difference between Babel (Genesis 11) and Pentecost (Acts 2) is the presence of the Holy Spirit. When we try to do things on our own, we encounter obstacles. However, when filled with the Holy Spirit the possibilities for effective ministry are endless.
