Sunday September 30, 2018 - Proper 20 - Lectionary Link Holy Eucharist Rite II - 10:30AM- Announcement Insert & Prayer List Join us at 10:30AM for a Rite II Eucharist celebrated by Rev. Alexis. ONE WORD: Men and women, throughout the millennia, have invited us to unity with God. A God ceaselessly offering himself/herself to us. Despite our consistent rejection. God, relentlessly calling to our attention that we already have all the grace we need. When did we get this lifetime supply of grace? At our birth! It’s inside us, ready and waiting. Divine appetite. Godly capacity. So far so good; what’s our part? John the Baptist answers the question with his one-word sermon, “Repent.” Which is the same as saying, choose unity with God today. Re-imagine life. Why repent of our present life? “Because some of us are simply sick and tired of being sick and tired.” Because, disunity with God is hell right now. What areas of your life are out of step with Jesus’ teaching? Want more unity, more harmony, with a loving God? It’s available. Your choice.
