Reimagining Lent: For God so loved the world, that God gave us each other.
On this third week of Lent, we give thanks for our sheroes.
Worship on Sunday, March 19
Pastor Tim Phillips preaches on the story of the Woman at the Well. The Sanctuary Choir sings the text, with readers Nancy Roberts-Brown and Pastor Tim..
Truth. Now that’s a concept. Because you know we live in a world of blatant lies and political spin and alternative facts and charges of fake news. And I find myself this morning asking the question that Pontius Pilate asked Jesus at the end of the Gospel of John. “So what is truth?”
After witnessing the alternative facts of his own times, Pilot throws up his hands, and then he tries to wash them of any responsibility there might be for the corruption and violence that is all around him. God help us this morning.
In Our Blog:
Truth or Perception?
Jim Segaar contemplates Truth and Perception.
Even though Pastor Tim and I are in different hemispheres, we seem to be thinking about some of the same things! Last Sunday Tim preached about Truth, and about that time I was writing in my personal blog about Perception. Perhaps a bit of explanation is in order. A few days ago JG and I bicycled along Lake Takapo in New Zealand, under the shadow of Mt. Cook, the tallest peak in the country. We did an out and back on a section of the Alps to Ocean trail, one of the gems of bicycle touring in New Zealand. It was spectacularly beautiful, and got me thinking about life, and work, and religion, and truth.
