Hey Friends --
Last Sunday was like international day at FPCS – we had an airline pilot from Dublin Ireland, a veterinarian immunologist from Edinburgh, Scotland, and a couple from Toronto, Canada, all visiting, and Nduta from Kenya was back. They loved being with us. Some weeks it’s more locals – guests from the Shelter downstairs, or the neighborhood. What a privilege to share a bit of life and faith with such a diversity of folks!
We’ve got a zinger of a text for this Sunday from Luke 12:49-56! For example, you’ve got Jesus saying in verse 51, “Do you think I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell, but rather division!” Hmmm. This, from the Prince of Peace? No wonder one commentary calls these eight verses some of the toughest in Luke!
I hope you’ll get chance to read through them a couple times – and bring your insights and questions, and let’s see if we can wrestle some good news from even this passage!
See you Sunday!
Grace and peace,
