Through the Question, June 3 2018

through the detailsMorsels & Stories: I talked about the differences in the Apostle’s (which we used in Easter) and the Nicene Creed (which we use most of the time).  For this I wrote the Creeds out in two different colours of ink.  That is still up at Church but I’d encourage you to do something similar if you want to see.  I wrote the Nicene Creed out in pencil, wrote over the Apostle’s Creed in one colour, and then finished the rest in another colour.  If you are doing this just for you, it would be easy to underline or highlight one of the parts.

Sermon: The pharisees want to talk about the law.  Jesus, who also loves the law, sees a whole different picture.  How do we learn to see like Jesus?

The lessons can be found by clicking here (link).  I worked most closely with Mark 2:23-3:6.
