Sunday, June 13th

Hi Church!

This week we turn again to the gospel according to Mark. The gospel of Mark is good news, that's what "gospel" means, about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God. Basically, Mark, is about good news.

This week in chapter 4 we wade into a number of stories about agriculture. Jesus used images that would speak to his disciples as well as his listeners. He speaks two parables:

1. The parable of the growing seed.

2. The parable of the mustard seed.

Both of these parables have to do with the Kingdom of God and its growth. The basic trajectory in both parables is a humble beginning and a bounteous ending. That speaks to both individual and organizational realities. Spend some time, if you can, in Mark 4:26-34 before Sunday.

For those of you who watch our service online, I need to make you aware that it might not be posted until later in the week. We are anticipating some technical difficulties this coming weekend. Please be patient with us.

This week we move to open seating in the sanctuary. All barriers have been taken down. Face masks are optional for those who are fully immunized. If not we ask that you continue to wear a mask.

God Bless!

Hi Church,

It is a beautiful middle of the week. This week we will be back to projecting the song lyrics on the screen. This Sunday is also a communion Sunday. We will continue to use the self-contained communion cups. Our policy on face masks is as follows: if you are vaccinated you can choose to wear or not wear a mask. If you are not yet vaccinated we ask that you wear a mask. While I am fully vaccinated, I will continue to wear a mask except when I am preaching.

This week we begin a five-week series from the gospel of Mark. This Sunday the text is Mark 3:20-35. Jesus has been performing a number of amazing healings. The crowds continue to grow as people are awed by his miracles. But oddly, his family wants to restrain him, thinking he is crazy. The scribes ascribe his healing and the casting out of demons as being done in the power of evil. Think for a moment. Is there anywhere in the Bible that a demon has done something good like healing a man of leprosy? Evidently it is hard for humans to determine what is ultimately good and evil.

I have attached this week's FBC@Home. Enjoy the next few days. I hope to see you Sunday.
