For the last several weeks we have been reading from the 5th Chapter of the Gospel of Matthew — a text known as the Sermon on the Mount. In it, Jesus presents a vision of the world as God intended it; a place called the Kingdom of God.
That Kingdom is brought to us in the person of Jesus, the Christ come among us. In Him is the possibility of the world God intended at creation. In Him is the fulfillment of the love and mercy of God. It comes to us when Jesus comes to us and we open our hearts to His grace.
We celebrate the Kingdom this Sunday at 9:00 am and 10:30 am. Sunday School resumes this week as well. We will also install our Council Officers at the 10:30 am service. Come and share in the Kingdom gifts — and bring a friend!
