God’s Work Our Hands Sunday
Please wear you God’s Work Our Hands t-shirt during worship service, whether in-person or Zoom.
The Sixteenth Sunday After Pentecost
Three weeks ago we heard Peter’s confession of faith as told in John’s gospel. This week we hear Mark’s version, when Peter says, “You are the Messiah.” In John, the stumbling block is Jesus’ invitation to eat his flesh, given for the life of the world. In Mark too the scandal has to do with Jesus’ words about his own coming death, and here Peter himself stumbles over Jesus’ words. But Jesus is anointed (the meaning of messiah) in Mark only on the way to the cross (14:3); so we are anointed in baptism with the sign of the cross.
Join us for worship and fellowship to follow!
The service will begin at 10:30, but plan to enjoy the prelude which begins at 10:20 a.m.
