How to know it’s going to be a bad day:
Your twin sister forgets your birthday.
Your income tax check bounces.
In the much beloved children’s book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, poor ole Alexander can’t catch a break. Nothing seems to be going right for him.
And this is similar to the problems the farmer faces in Jesus’ first parable in Matthew 13. The farmer planted seeds on various soils, and only ¼ of the seed fell on good soil and took root and produced a harvest. The disappointment of all that went wrong could have overwhelmed him; but instead from the broken seed . . . that did take root, the farmer reaped a harvest.
This weekend our focus will be on the challenge of having eyes to see God’s vision when all around us may be despair. This weekend we celebrate Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit, who brings us power and perspective to see life through God’s perspective rather than our own.
In the 9:30 service, we’ll celebrate the baptism of Leah Thompson, daughter of Craig & Kara Thompson. In the 11:00 service, we’ll commission our Jr High Youth and Leaders who are leaving that day for their mission trip to Madison, WI!
Look forward to seeing you in worship!
Beginning Wednesday, June 16 at 6:30
