Outside Worship/Virtual Worship—@ 9:30am,  Oct. 3rd  


        Lectionary is (Mark 10:2–16)

Today’s story unfolds in two parts: a discussion about divorce and marriage, and an apparent intrusion by some children and their caregivers. In both scenes, Jesus says people and relationships are of the greatest value. First, Jesus affirms God’s desire for love and respect within marriage. Then Jesus models God’s love for us by welcoming and blessing the children. Love enfolds those who are vulnerable, defenseless, and at risk.  (Through questions, we come to know God’s truth – and knowing this truth calls us to show compassion to others, have hope in the face of despair, and work for justice for all God’s creation.)  A suggestion:  listen to “How Then Shall I Live” by Linnea Good on Youtube.
