We celebrated in worship a Sunday filled with promise and encouragement. Our reading from Proverbs reminded us that wisdom comes in the everyday things, not just the miraculous; all we have to do is listen. James’ epistle encourages and warns us: stick with our faith and sharing but be careful if you are one who teaches because you are held to a higher standard. What is the requirement for our sharing? Mark conveys Jesus’ question we need to answer “who do you say I am?” Our mission is to engage people and help them know Jesus and God – not in absolutes but in the interaction and search for God’s presence. Where is God urging you to look for God’s opportunity?
I invite your comments,
