Welcome in the name of the Lord! We gladly welcome you to our church home, trusting that if you are seeking Christ, you will find him here; if troubled in spirit, you will gain peace; if discouraged, you will rejoice in hope; if friendless, find companionship and Christian love; that these and other blessings may be your portion is our prayer. We invite you to worship with us.
Eighteenth Week of Pentecost
September 22 and 23, 2018
In this weekend's scripture readings we hear James warn against selfish ambition, while the disciples quarrel over which one of them is the greatest. Jesus tells them the way to be great is to serve. Then, to make it concrete, he puts in front of them an actual flesh-and-blood child. We are called to welcome the particular children God puts in front of us, to make room for them in daily interaction, and to give them a place of honor in the assembly.
