Good Sunday morning -- Phyllis & Jim
Thank you Pastor Dennis. Great to see you and hear you once again. Come back again soon.
Prayers being sent up for Pastor Deb❤️🙏
Reading: Mark 1:1-8 - “As it is written in the prophet Isaiah, “See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you who will prepare your way; the voice of one crying out in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight,’” John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.”(v. 2-4)

Reflection: The man, John, is an important figure, both in the Gospel story and in our learning to follow Jesus. In Markʼs Gospel there is no dramatic narrative telling of his unique birth and no clear mention of his relationship with Jesus. There is just this strange man who comes, at it were, out of nowhere with a manner and a way of dressing that would immediately have evoked images of the Old Testament prophets in the minds of his hearers. He catches peopleʼs attention, but he doesnʼt draw attention to himself. His whole purpose is to point the crowds to another, more important person to come. He is there for no other reason than to prepare people for Christ, and when his job is done, he simply slips into the background again.

There is a tremendous confidence and a tremendous humility represented by John. He was confident in who God had called him to be and in the job he was to do. But, he was humble enough not to let this go to his head, not to claim more for himself than was his right, and not to resist letting go of the attention of the crowds when his time was up. He knew his task, and he did it - no more, no less.

Which raises some challenging questions for us. We may not be Johns or Christs. We may not have any kind of public platform, or any task to do that holds such global significance. But, we are all called and we all have a part to play in Godʼs reign. So, who are you in Christ? What has God given you to do for the sake of Godʼs reign? How good are you at judging when to act and when to retreat, when something is yours to do, and when your task is to stand back for others? In what ways can you be more intentional this week at fulfilling Godʼs call on your life?

Prayer: O God, Who is always preparing me for the coming of your reign, and who is always calling me to help others prepare, teach me what you would have me do. Do not let me hide or despise my particular gifts or tasks, And nudge me when I need to get out of the way and let others do the work; Most of all, help me to have confidence in who you have called me to be, and the humility simply to be myself. Amen.
DAILY ADVENT DEVOTION

Read Micah 4:1-5
“But in the days to come, the mountain of the Lord’s house will be the highest of the mountains; it will be lifted above the hills; peoples will stream to it. Many nations will go and say: “Come, let’s go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of Jacob’s God, so that he may teach us his ways and we may walk in God’s paths!” (v.1-2)

Reflection: Micah's vision of Godʼs reign is one of peace and prosperity, with worship at its heart. This aligns very closely with the vision that Jesus gives in his teaching and in his actions. It offers an encouraging message for us - when God comes, the motive is not to destroy, judge or conquer like a dictator. Rather God seeks to restore and to reconcile.

As always, the challenge of these visions is that we can begin to experience and live out the values of Godʼs reign in our own lives right now. So, take a moment to consider Micahʼs vision again, but this time, ask yourself how you can begin to embody this vision for yourself this Advent season.

In what ways can you make your worship - the “mountain of Godʼs temple” - the most important place in your life, and how can it be something that attracts other people to God? How can your life be used by God to bring mediation between those who are in dispute, or to reconcile those who are in conflict? How can you contribute to peace and prosperity in your community?

These may sound like big expectations that God has for us, but small actions that respond to these promptings can have a significant impact, if we will just commit to living out our faith and hope daily.

Prayer: God of peace and justice, may my worship of you give me a clearer vision of your reign. May my love for you be expressed not just in songs and prayers, but in working for peace and reconciliation, and for prosperity and security, for those with whom I live and work and play. Amen.

John van der Leer, Sacredise
DAILY ADVENT DEVOTION

Read Mark 13: 23-37 -

But in those days … the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light" (v. 24)

Itʼs tempting to read passages like this as a prediction of God returning to earth as a military conquerer to destroy the people we consider to be evil and to establish a God-controlled empire on earth. But, to read Mark that way is to misunderstand both the Gospel writer and Jesus. Mark wrote at a time of war, when Israel was being conquered by the Roman Army, and he is reminding his readers that Jesus had spoken about this very thing happening. The language Jesus uses is the same as that of the Old Testament prophets - full of strong visual imagery, metaphors and symbols. It is not to be taken literally. For us the key here is to grasp the heart of Jesusʼ message - no matter what you may see going on in the world, God is not surprised, God is always coming to us and calling us to participate in Godʼs reign in our world, and, to do this, we need to be alert and mindful, always aware of the signs of Godʼs activity even in the midst of the worldʼs turmoil.

Where do you see signs of Godʼs coming in your life? In what ways can you co-operate with Godʼs activity? What can you do to be even more mindful and aware of Godʼs presence and purpose in your life?

Prayer: O God who is always present and always seeking entrance into my life, please give me the eyes, the ears, the heart and the faith, to see and embrace the signs of your coming, and to help others to see them & receive them too. Amen.

(John van de Laar, Sacredise)

Lectionary 14, 6th Sunday after Pentecost – Sunday, July 04, 2021

GOSPEL OF Mark 6:1-13

Jesus does great deeds of power and gives his disciples authority over demons. Yet none of this power is unilateral; it all must be received by faith. Jesus asks his disciples to go out without money or supplies, so that they will be dependent on how others receive them. When we are sent from the assembly to witness and to heal, we are asked to be vulnerable, to be dependent on the reception of others. The Spirit always operates in the “between”: between Jesus and his Abba, between Jesus and us, between you and me, between us and those to whom we are sent.

GOSPEL OF Mark 5:21-43

A woman finds healing by touching Jesus’ cloak, and a girl is restored to life when he takes her by the hand. In both cases a boundary is crossed: in Jesus’ time the hemorrhaging woman was considered ritually unclean, polluting others by her touch, and anyone who touched a co**se also became unclean. In Mark’s gospel Jesus breaks down barriers, from his first meal at a tax collector’s house to his last breath on the cross as the temple curtain is torn in two. We dare to touch Jesus in our “uncleanness” and to live as a community that defines no one as an outsider.

Now is the acceptable time; now is the day of salvation! Now we are in the storm, the boat almost swamped; but Jesus is here now, and when we call him, he will calm the storm. Even the wind and waves listen to him as they would to their creator. We also listen to him and are called to believe in the power of God’s word in him, a power greater than all that we fear.

Lectionary 11, 3rd Sunday after Pentecost – Sunday, June 13, 2021

GOSPEL OF Mark 4:26-34

The mustard seed becomes a great shrub that shelters the birds, recalling ancient images of the tree of life. We’d expect a cedar or a sequoia, but Jesus finds the power of God better imaged in a tiny, no-account seed. It’s not the way we expect divine activity to look. Yet the tree of life is here, in the cross around which we gather, the tree into which we are grafted through baptism, the true vine that nourishes us with its fruit in the cup we share. It may not appear all that impressive, but while nobody’s looking it grows with a power beyond our understanding.
