This Coming Sunday Morning
We invite you to join our Sunday morning service online.

Here is a preview of this coming Sunday's service.
Coming Up on July 12 & 19:
Not all the civil rights victories of the '60s were won at the cost of vicious beatings and mass arrests played-out in front of television cameras. The Strange Demise of Jim Crow reveals for the first time on film how many Southern cities were desegregated in a quieter, almost stealthy fashion with behind-the-scenes negotiations, secret deals and controversial news black-outs. It makes visible a fascinating case-study in Houston of how urban power is really wielded.

I love the parables. They are stories and puzzles and fascinating and sometimes frightening. As soon as I think I have one sorted some new facet seems to be waiting to be uncovered (like a treasure in a field?). This Sunday’s lection is a very popular parable and I expect it will give us much to discuss.
Scripture: Matthew 13:1-23

We think of love through many different lenses. The love that Jesus spoke of was a selfless love, a love for everyone - friend or foe, known or unknown, in agreement or disagreement. The Covenant Singers will sing "Though I May Speak," often known by the title, "The Gift of Love," which reminds us that anything we may say or do, must be done with love. It ends with the prayer for the Spirit to guide and empower us to do every deed in love.
