Jesus poses a matter-of-fact question to Bartimaeus and elicits two responses; one spoken and one unspoken. “What do you want me to do?….My teacher, let me see again.” Bartimaeus’ spoken response is clear. He wants to regain his sight and be healed. Bartimaeus’ unspoken response goes to the heart of the matter. “What do you want me to do?…. My lord, let me know you as you are…A servant. My wisdom and my true word.” Pastor Sergio Rodriguez preaches from Mark 10:46-52, Twenty-second Sunday after Pentecost, Year B.

You may also participate in the 11 a.m. worship livestream via Facebook or YouTube. Log on at 11 a.m. to join us live or access the archived service anytime after.

Join us between services this Sunday to write letters together for Bread for the World. In our letters, we are asking Congress to make the Child Tax Credit (CTC) permanent and available to all children regardless of immigration status. Please join us in the courtyard at Christ the King on October 24. You can also advocate online at www.bread.org/go.

Wild Hope: Book Discussion Group for the Season of Creation – Wednesdays Online

Wednesdays, September 8 – October 6, 6:00 p.m. online
Join environmentalists, animal lovers, other Christians and people of all faith/spiritual traditions in a weekly book discussion group using the book Wild Hope: Stories for Lent from the Vanishing. You may ask – Lent isn’t until 2022, why are we reading this now? While written for Lent, this book is very appropriate for the Season of Creation (September 1 – October 4). Wild Hope contains 25 beautifully-written, intimate portraits of the lives of endangered animals, the hazards they face and how people are responding to save them. The book is inspiring and awakens deep empathy. The stories do not contain any explicitly religious material, yet they are incredibly moving. Readers of all backgrounds will find this little book powerful. Join a small group to read this book from September 1 – October 4 & meet to discuss it – that’s five 900-word stories/week. Please register.
