Lessons for the week of July 23, 2017

Here is the link for this coming Sunday's lessons:
Here are questions for us to consider:
Genesis 28:10-19 One of may favorite serigraphs from John August Swanson (the artist who did the work hanging in our breezeway) is about this passage from Genesis (see http://www.johnaugustswanson.com/default.cfm/PID%3D1.2.30.2-14.html). Have you ever felt that you received a divine message in a dream? What made you feel that way? Did it result in a change to your waking life?

Psalm 139: 1-11, 22-23 I have read this psalm to people when they are approaching death, even when they are not fully conscious. Many find it comforting as a confession of God's omnipotence and care for us. Try reading and reflecting on it as part of your devotions this week.

Romans 8:12-25 One way we connect to the Spirit is when we cry, "Abba! Father!" This is a reminder of our central prayer as Christians, "Our Father..." Pray the Lord's Prayer at least daily this week. Try not to rush through it, but pray it slowly and as an expression of your faith in a loving God that cares about us and cares about our world.

Matthew 13:24-30,36-43 Another parable about seeds! Last week, the seeds encountered various soils that could make it difficult to grow. This week, the challenge is about weeds and when and how to sort them from the wheat. It seems that at least one point is for us not to worry abut sorting things in this life. What do you think?

I am the preacher this Sunday. Please pray for me as I prepare to speak and for all of us as we prepare to hear and respond to God's Word. Also, let me know if you want to order The Path, the abridged copy of the Bible we will be using for much of the 2017-18 program year. If you have already signed up, then no need to respond. We are now over sixty ordered!
