Lessons for the week of May 21, 2017

Here is the link to this Sunday's lessons:


Here are questions for us to consider:
Acts 17:22-31 In his sermon in Athens, Paul quoted a Greek poet who wrote about the One God, "‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said." This is a fantastic image for God and God's relationship with all of Creation.  What does it remind you of? For me, it is as if Creation exists within God like a growing baby within its mother's womb. Reflect on this image for our relationship with God. Does it change how you see the world and your place in it?

Psalm 66:7-18 This psalm runs the gamut of human experience-- hardships and joys-- and how we relate these to our faith in God. This psalm states that God tests us in hard ways; and also trusts that God is on our side even in the middle of these tests. What is your response to this view of God?

1 Peter 3:13-22 How do we sanctify Christ as Lord in our hearts?

John 14:15-21 How does love grow deeper with truth? How does love soften truth and help us to embrace it in our lives? What role does forgiveness play in this process? As one of my favorite verses in the Bible states it, "Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other" (Psalm 85:10).

I am the preacher this week. Please pray for me as I prepare to speak and for all of us as we prepare to listen and respond to God's Word.
