This Sunday after worship we begin our third Sunday of the month luncheons. Bring something if you like but most of all, bring yourself. The only purpose is food and fellowship. And that is what this New Testament word–koinonia–means: fellowship. That is friendship in Christ, folks and it is a beautiful thing. Especially over some lemon chicken prepared by hour hostess, Sheba Greene!
The sermon title this Sunday is: Remembering Jesus, The Jews, And Those Who Killed Them. The sordid history of Christian anti-Jewish rhetoric and destruction must be countered and a good first step toward that is to critically engage problematic scriptures in the New Testament that have been used to promote such evil. This past Wednesday, Pastor Bledsoe participated in Days of Remembrance at the Holocaust Museum (as he has done for years), reading the names of victims. This coming Tuesday, he will speak to a ninth grade religious studies class at Temple Micah on why he is a Christian. The promotion of mutual understanding and respect between Christians and Jews is deeply cherished by Pastor Bledsoe. We invite you to worship with us on Sunday at 10 a.m.
