Sermon for B Pentecost 17 “Location and Vocation”

Sermon for B Pentecost 17      “Location and Vocation”     September 16, 2018 Based on Mark 8: 27-38 

Mark seems not to care about an accurate travel itinerary for Jesus and his followers. Last week we learned of Jesus going from Israel into the Gentile northwest, then walked hundreds of miles to the gentile southeast corner of the Galilee by going further north to Sidon.

Friday Morning Bible Study Restarts September 7

We’re back with Friday Morning Study on September 7 at 10:30 a.m. It is an important time to gather for personal care, prayer, and study. Usually we take a close look at the coming Sunday lessons, under the leadership of Pastor Larson or Pastor Liebster. Sometimes we might change the format. The Spirit is lively with us! There is always great, and sometimes provocative conversation; all about how the Lord stimulates us into deeper faith and reasoned, respectful growth in understanding. The sumptuous food is always wonderful, too. We meet again in the narthex (for the time being). Everyone welcome!
