Sermon: "Love & Betrayal" by Pastor Tim Philips
John 13.31-38 (the Inclusive Bible)
Once Judas left, Jesus said,
“Now is the Chosen One glorified and God is glorified as well. If God has been glorified, God will in turn glorify the Chosen One and will do so very soon. My little children, I won’t be with you much longer. You’ll look for me, but what I said to the Temple authorities, I say to you: where I am going you cannot come. I give you a new commandment: Love one another. And you’re to love one another the way I have loved you. This is how all will know that you’re my disciples: that you truly love one another.” Simon Peter said, “Rabbi, where are you going?” Jesus replied, “Where I am going you cannot follow now, though you’ll follow me later.” “Rabbi,” Peter said, “Why can’t I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you!” “Lay down your life for me?” exclaimed Jesus. “The truth of the matter is, before the cock crows, you’ll have disowned me three times!”
Anthem: "Draw the Circle Wide"
Our Sunday was filled with life, music, and a wonderful message on God's invitation to expand our capacity for love for one another. Here are some images from our concert, our services, and our Adult Education.
