Sunday Worship Service
A message from Pastor Tim Phillips August 1, 2021
Ever tried to find that perfect gift? Hard as I try, it’s amazing how many times I can get it wrong. And, anyway, is there such a thing as a “perfect” gift? The letter to the community of Jesus in Ephesus follows up its affirmation of a variety of gifts with instructions about how to be the gift you are - the example being Jesus who “offered himself… a gift of pleasing fragrance.” We are God’s work of art, Ephesians says, and Jesus is God’s perfume. Sounds perfect. Or is it? James says, “every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights.” Join us as we wonder together about gifts.
