Sunshine!, Getting Together, Today's Sermon

1. Little fur ball, Henri is soaking up as much sun as he possibly can.
1a. The girls were going through the Sunday paper ads and choosing all the favorite things they would buy if they could.
2. More good times as we practice our skit, share a meal, and study together.
3. Our pastor, in his sermon from Galations, said, "We want spiritual intimacy without commitment." More specifically, we want spiritual intimacy without the commitment of ethics or theology. It is so very true.
3a. The sermon was twofold. He also drove home the point which we hear often, and that is: "It is Jesus Christ plus nothing." It's not the way a person dresses that makes him a Christian, or speaks, or votes, or raises his children, or anything else he does. It is Christ alone. Amen.

  1. I'm chair of Worship committee at church and we stew a bit about how to get more young people in our doors (the median age of members of our church is over 60), but I always think it boils down to just what your pastor says - spiritual intimacy without commitment.
