This Sunday's gospel reading, Luke 17:11-19, "is about a healing miracle of ten lepers, where one of the healed, a Samaritan, turns back in gratitude. This Samaritan, this double outcast, embodies the radical nature of gratitude by turning toward the true source of wholeness and healing for all people. Jesus tells the Samaritan that his reorientation toward a life of gratitude is what he means by faith." (from Seasons of the Spirit)

Artwork by JESUS MAFA is a response to the New Testament readings from the Lectionary by a Christian community in Cameroon, Africa. Each of the readings were selected and adapted to dramatic interpretation by the community members. Photographs of their interpretations were made, and these were then transcribed to paintings.

Sunday School Resumes Sept. 11

Get ready! Sunday school starts up again September 11. Webster uses the Shine curriculum. The curriculum, Shine: Living in God’s Light co-published by Brethren Press, was written and inspired by different biblical texts referring to the light and how it shines in the world.  A confirmation class is also forming this fall; contact Pastor Marcia if interested.


 

Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:1-2
