This Sunday, we will be dealing with a series of questions…
- How do others see us?
- How do we see ourselves?
- Does the way others see us color the way we see ourselves?
- How does Jesus see us?
- How do we see others?
We will spend some time examining each question in relation to Paul’s letter to the Romans as Paul struggles with how he sees himself, as well as our Gospel reading from Matthew, where we find Jesus offering a comforting, but also challenging, invitation: “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Anointing with oil will be offered at both services.
